From sweep-netting in a field in a Houston, TX, on July 22, 2012. I believe it's Ceratobarys eulophus, but would like confirmation or correction, please.

Is there any apical spur on the hind tibia? I can't see from your pictures clearly!!
Sincerely yours

in this photo, you can barely see the apex of the right hind tibia, peeking out from below the abdomen.

If I be correct I see a spur on the tip of hind tibia in your third pic, I think you are right about species! Smile

Any thoughts?

I bow to Terry Wheeler's superior knowledge of Chloropidae in your part of the world. Smile

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
