Grateful for its identification.

Hi, I don't think it's one of the Calliphoridae, the wing venation points to Muscidae. I'm not the expert, but it's probably a Pyrellia cf. vivida.

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