Oh, Nikita - he is gorgeous - a 'proper' robber fly, like I remember from my childhood in Australia - huge, colourful and fierce. Interesting colours on the substrate - lichen? on rock?

No rock, just a stone on the field ground, 1500 above sea level.

Nikita, A great shot of a splendid Stenopogon sp. I can't attempt a species ID now, as I'm away from any reference material. If a species name isn't added in a few days, will give it a try then (this handsome fly needs a proper identity!).

Eric.

Thank you Eric.
This handsome fly is collected, so if you need any additional details for ID, let me know.

Nikita,

I'm afraid that I am unable to take this handsome Stenopogon beyond genus level. There are about 65 species of Stenopogon described from Europe & N. Asia, and this one is not one of the 15 or so I have from this area. Fritz Geller-Grimm would be the best bet for an ID of this fly.

Regards, Eric

Genus level isn't bad for start.
Thank you Eric.

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
