this Sciomyzidae (~8 mm) I found today at the edge of a small pond.
Can something be said to the species at the photo - and one can " P. verbekei/zernyi" (my favorites) at the photo differentiate?

Hello again Smile,

Property again in the net searched, and an interesting key found:

Therefore it should to concern here P. verbekei (In the key still P. punctata).
Do I interpret that wrong or is the key obsolete?

Best regards,

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

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
