I am always grateful when someone makes or confirms an identification for me and usually post back a "thank you" reply. However I'm aware that this bumps a resolved thread back to the top of the list. Is it acceptable to just put a "thanks in advance" comment in my first post and only post back if I have further questions?

I support this request! Sufficiently resolved threads should "rest in peace". Only those that need another reply or get a new comment should return to the top of the list. Our politeness creates too much unessential replies.

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
