I can share with you my negative experience :@
After Paul and Kahis advises in:
I did try to collect in alcohol and pin afterwards.
1. Pinning from alcohol requires much more job and time than pinning of fresh flies.
2. Pinning fresh flies in sito
permits to get much better order: legs, genitalia and whatever we need to examen on this fly.
I go on pinning fly the same day I collect its!
