I would say it's Sarcophagidae rather.

Indeed.

It's a Amobia.
2-3 species around, only distinguishable by the male genitalia.
This is a male, so
did you collect it ?
Otherwise, it will remain Amobia spec., I'm afraid.

fooled by red traffic eyes. awkward and for abdomen. It was so convincent to be a Sarcophagidae fly!
How can we distinguish here apart Sarcophagidae/Tachinidae?
Subscutellum is not easily visible...


* Theo, please see email. Smile

As far as I can tell - Amobia belongs to Sarcophagidae!

My 'indeed' referred to 'Sarcophagidae'

So Jorge did get the trafficlight-red eyes splendidly !

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
