Cemetry with some sunflowers, Berlin-Freidrichshain, Germany, 7mm - did I see the invador from the South in Berlin correctly? Thank you so much, Jörg

I see no reason it couldn't be Strauzia longipennis. How many species of Strauzia are in Europe? In America there is a similar, rare species on Verbesina.

Yes, it is. I collected it last summer in the south of Berlin, next to the place we recorded it in 2009, so why not? Looks like I must observe Friedrichshain these weekends. Which part of the park is it? (Oh, I see, also a cemetary)

Georgen-Parochial-Friedhof, Boxhagener Str. A great hunting place, lots of „uncared“ corners😉. I like to go there when I am in Berlin (flat around the corner) I am here until Saturday afternoon, yesterday too windy, hardly any sun. Just saw 2-3 Merodon moenium females and the first Crabronidae. Thank you all for the confirmation, Jörg

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
