Hello calluna, it's a couple of Sepsis, not Pepsis which is the biggest one of Hymenoptera!
Unfortunately it is nearly impossible to find the species of these Sepsis without a sharp image of the male's fore tibia.

Sorry Eric, of course I ment Sepsis. Does it matter that I can mention that this copula was found just above fresh dung of a Badger? I made a lot op pictures so I wil look for a better picture.

Hello Jap, there's a PDF avaible including keys an descriptions of Sepsidae:
Pont/Maier, 2002: The Sepsidae (Diptera) of Europe
This helps to find the critical characters on photos of the Sepsidae.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
