I see bristles so it's probably one of the atypical Calliphoridae in the Melanomya group. Based on the American literature I have it can't be Menalomya s. str. because the only species has dark halteres. It can't be Opsodexia because that genus is American. The remaining groups are Eggisops and Angioneura. There might be additional European genera I don't know about.

If you look at the calypter, it is rhinophoridae-type .
Now, this does occur in some Angioneura, so that does not contradict John’s analysis. But the strong apical scutellars amd especially the very strong bristle at base of wing, well shown in first pic, do !
So, I’d say it is Oplisa (Rhinophoridae)

Could you please check the ocellar bristle ? They seem to be reclinate, ie. bent backwards.

I am glad North America is deficient in Rhinophoridae. They make too much trouble. Our only common species is the imported, distinctive Melanophora roralis.

Thank you. Yes - I've done it now. The file was too large.

no blanks in filename, file size reduced (below 300 k or so).Did you fulfill these criteria ?

I've repeatedly tried to upload a photo with my thread but nothing is showing. I can't see that I've done anything wrong. Can someone please assist?

19.12.18 13:10
I might add that this is a great resource and I am really thankful for all the members help.

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.
