How common is it that Muscidae have a red or orange frons and in which genera/species does it occur?

Hi Johan,
the Muscidae with orange frons are extremely rare. It is one of the trick to distinguish them from Anthomyiidae. I think about Coenosia, like C. testacea, which has orange on anterior part of frons, the genus Atherigona, and there are perhaps a few species in Coenosi-a (-ini) that doesn't come to my mind so early in the morning.
Stephane.

The reason why I asked is this fly.

Is it C. mollicula?

Compare with Mycophaga testacea (Anthomyiidae): http://www.dipter...to_id=6562

It is not Coenosia mollicula or another Muscidae then?

I don't know. I know it is not Mycophaga testacea because that has partly reddish scutellum, but I do not know about related species. I cannot for certain say that it is Muscidae, but looking further in the Anthomyiidae gallery there is also this picture of Pegomyia cf. solennis: http://www.dipter...to_id=6786. Oddly enough, the males of that species in the Gallery all have grey fore tibiae, the female's fore tibia is rather orange.
Anyway, I am venturing on thin ice as I know preciously little about Anthomyiidae...

The picture is very small, but I would say Anthomyiidae-Pegomya also.
