Jorge, You made my day Grin I have never seen Milichiidae before. I have only the Bei-Bienko key and maybe it's more like Phyllomyza ?

No, this is not a milichiid. It belongs to the Chloropidae. It doesn't have any orbital or frontal setae and you can faintly see the wave in the posterior wing vein (CuA1).

Thank You. In fact I forgot to change the name of this thread after Kahis said the same thing. So far unidentified Chloropidae it will be.

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
