Slovakia, Bansk√° Bystrica, 14 June 2024, mixed forest, the base of damaged Silver fir, 650 m.a.s.l., Rhagio of the "normal size". I am quite sure that it is R. scolopaceus but the wing pattern and yellow femora look quite strange for me. Is it within a variability of R. scolopaceus?

Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, there was not enough light, my other photos are of low quality.

Spotted wings, eyes are touching = male R. scolopaceus. The species is rather variable in color.

The strongly elongated antennal tip, esp. In males, is highly distinctive.

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
