Based on a key by David Gibbs, I have concluded that this animal belongs to Pipunculus because of coloured stigma, scutellum without long bristles, and fine indument on the thorax. Can it be confirmed, and is there any chance to get it to species? From moist ground with flowering shrubs (Crataegus, Salix, Corylus) in edge of old broadleaf forest North of Aarhus 31st of May.

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
