Can you give me a name for this strange fly? Look the strange antennae at the end of a peduncle.

Caught in my garden, Zaragoza, Spain, sucking flowers of sage (Salvia officinalis). Size: 7-9 mm less or more.

Thanks in advance.
Regards 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
