The fly was caught by hand indoors, November 11th 2023 (Spain: Girona: Beuda: 400 masl)
Looks like Musca but is not Musca domestica. Perhaps M.autumnalis, but abdomen is mostly grey with orange only anteriorly.

It has a broad frontal vitta and haired proepisternum, consistent with Musca domestica.

That's the hairs on proepisternum (in front of spiracle) that seemed to be absent to me...

I see a few hairs, not as many as in the drawing.

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

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