Hello,

beginning in November there appeared lots of tiny Calliphora in and around our wintergarden (northwest Germany). They measured only about 5-7 mm (males and females). I assume they hatched somewhere there. The "invasion" lasted from early November until Christmas, with not so many animals at the end of the period. All pictures shown here and in later posts were taken between Nov., 11, and Dec., 25.
I am not sure, if these flies are Calliphora vicina, as I have difficulties correctly identifying the basicostae on the photos...

Some photos are rather big, so I uploaded them on my own server.
I start with some males. Pics with the same numbers show the same individuals.

Red gena is also typical for vicina... so vicina it is.

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

15.09.19 20:41
Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

11.09.19 13:15
I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

22.07.19 15:09
Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

16.07.19 13:31
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
