Hi all !!!

I pictured this specimen in my garden in Belgium on 2022-05-10.

Seems to be Calliphoridae -> Pollenia, female.

I could measure the specimen on picture : 9,5mm

With such yellow setea on spiracle and such patch on the parafasciales, can we Id this specimen ???

Thank you for comments and / or ID !!!

Hello Didier, I'm afraid we cannot go further than female Pollenia cf. rudis (the basicosta is pale and it seems there are 2 ad bristles on mid tibia. But to be more confident, a dorsal view of the abdomen would be necessary).
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner
