a few days ago, I took a few pictures of a grey fly with some red above the antennae. My best guess would be a Anthomyidae, but well, its only a guess. Is it possible to identify the fly from the pictures?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), leaf, 24.05.2024, app. 6 mm

Anthomyiidae female. Mostly impossible to identify from photos...

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
