Hello

Is it possible to confirm the ID of this fly found yesterday in a calcareous grassland ?
Basicosta are whitish, each mid tibia has 2 ad. Is the frons narrow enough to exclure species as L. regalis ?
This fly is much smaller than the usual Lucilia sericata that I find on flowers.

The keys by Mihalyi (http://publicatio...69_181.pdf) and Rognes (https://www.resea..._in_Norway) give a detailed description of shape and distribution of setae and hairs on the tergites, which in your picture, to me, match L. richardsi. Being no Calliphoridae expert, that's all I can say...
Regards, Sundew

Thank you Sundew. I used Mihalyi's key but I didn't know Rognes's publication that is more precise about setae on abdomen and frons width. Indeed, it looks good for richardsi. To be confirmed...

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

No worries. Not everyone has time all the time. Wink

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently

21.01.21 08:58
No idea what happened but it is corrected
