This looks like a Tachinid, the wing venation recalls Goniini or Dexiini. Theo can surely tell more; you should change the title to attract his attention.

Many thanks for your help Pierre Yves. Unfortunately I have only this one image. It was found among reed beds on boggy ground in a Fen = Marsh.

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
