Hi,

It doesn't look like a Calliphorid to me. Wink 28th June 2010, on my door, Near Lincoln UK.

I agree - small calyptrae, petiolate median vein and small, rounded head - Rhinopgoridae Smile

Aaah, that did enter my head. Thanks Rui and Chris, is there any chance of at least a genus?

I've looked at the species of Rhinophoridae we have here, there are very few. This has to be Phyto melanocephala, it looks like the one in the gallery. The other Phyto specie listed for the UK is P. discrepans which is listed on the NBN Gateway but has no distribution map so looks unlikely.

The other genera only have one species each, none of those look to be a candidate. They are:

Melanophora roralis, Paykullia maculata, Rhinophora lepida, Stevenia atramentaria and Tricogena rubricosa

Thank you Theo! Grin

It has a generally more southern distribution on the NBN Gateway, which seems to be the norm for many inscets I have.

Well, Phyto mel. has become rapidly more common in The NEtherlands over the last 10 years, maybe the same is going on in the UK.

Either that Theo, or the use of better digital cameras and people's increased interest due to the digital cameras could have a lot to do with it. It could be both.
