Photographed today from east China. Looks blue with purple tint. Could it be a Lucillia species? Are other genera like Calliphora and Chrysoma also possible? Thanks.

Some Lucilia can be blue. You also have genera related to Lucilia that are not present in North America or Europe, such as Hemipyrellia.

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
