I have no leads to identify this small fly (~5mm). Is it a small Tachinidae? Any idea of the genus?

Apr 17, 2022, Near Banyuls-sur-mer, Southern France.

It's a Sarcophagidae and not a Tachinidae.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
