Hello, here is a photo of a female Medetera (Dolichopodidae), taken in the east of France (Doubs, Arc-et-Senans)
Luc Bettinelli : France : Arc-et-Senans : 25610 : 18/05/2024
Altitude : 236 m - Taille : 1,5-2 mm
Réf. : 342994

I think that the specific identification would be very risky, but I note in any case the two-tone (or even multi-colored) character of the eyes, which for me resonates with this article by Marc Pollet (and in particular with the species Medetera aglaops). Do you have an opinion?

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
