Hello,

this 8 mm fly looked like a male Muscid on first impression, but its M-vein is bent like that of a Calliphorid. At a hedge near small brook (northwest Germany).

First impression really was Morellia, but as correctly pointed out by Juergen wing venation is off.
It seems to a dark male Protocalliphora.

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
