Hello again,

At first glance I believed it to be some sort of Tenthredo, but at home I saw immediately it was a fly. I couldn't think of anything else bus Syrphidae, and I think it turns out to be Xylota, but I'm not sure which one. Can you tell by looking at those two images?

Hai Andre,
Clearly a female of Xylota segnis!
Characteristic are the spines on the underside of femur 3.

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
