I observed this Diptera this 30th of September in Audinghen in the north of France. I think of a male of Lucilia sericata, what do you think ?

Cordially maxime

Hello Maxime,

it is not a species of Lucilia or Calliphoridae; it's a species of Muscidae, specifically a male Neomyia cornicina.

Best wishes,
