Can anyone assist with a possible species for this sarcophagid? Taken by a friend on the Ile de Re, off the Atlantic coast of France, April 2018.

Hello Susan,

Sarcophaga (Sarcophaga): long p, pv and v hairs on the hind tibia and 4 dc are visible. I have no doubt about Sarcophaga (Sarcophaga) sp. However, i think that only Dr. Pape could recommend a species without genitalia.

I have identified carnaria, variegata and lehmanni via genitalia. Dr. Pape confirmed two of them for me (I wasn't sure if i was seeing the genitalia correctly.) If this were from Central Europe, then i would suggest checking against carnaria or variegata. However, France may have other species.

I hope that you have a lovely evening. Smile

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
