Very nice - another Graphogaster perhaps but could this be female?

I had missed this post. Yes, not only looks exactly like the female of Graphogaster vestita but the characteristic discal bristles on T4 can be seen.

But I would be happier with Theo's opinion Wink

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
