Hi,

a few days ago, I took some pictures of a medium sized fly on a leaf in our garden. It has some red/orange markings that made me curious. I think it could be a Sarcophagidae (Sarcophaga sp.), but the red markings and the "furry collar" generate some doubts. Is that really a Sarcophagidae?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), leaf in garden, 191.05.2024, app. 8-10 mm (I don't really remember the size, but that should be ok, more or less)

Greetings, Uli

Tachinidae, probably tribe Winthemiini.

European Sarcophagidae have bare eyes.

Male Winthemia quadripustulata, I think.

Hi John & Eric!

Thanks for the correction/determination. The hint with the hairy eyes is pretty useful, I was not aware of that.

According to the images of Winthemia quadripustulata in the internet, it is certainly a very good match. The light brown scutellum and the reddish spots on the second segment are all there.

Thanks again & greetings, Uli

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
