Philygria has posterior notopleural bristle above anterior, unlike this fly.

It is Scoliocephalus pallidisetis.
It is not rare on Tamarix in southern Spain.
Good photo.

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
