i am sorry for missing this post. I was very tired yesterday and my arm is hurting. I must've overlooked it.

This is not L. sericata. I think that it is most likely Lucilia caesar male.
John and Nini. Naturalists not experts.
currently injured. healing from surgery.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
