Hi, given the genitalia I would call this specimen Lucilia ampullacea. Can someone confirm (or not) the identification, please?

seems okay to me but you should separate the cerci/surstyli and the aedeagus to be certain. The aedeagus is slightly visible and seems like it supports your id too but it should be viewed seaparately.

Thank you! I thought that the mass of curled black hairs between the surstyli and aedeagus was very characteristic, besides L. ampullacea only found in L. richardsi (but the basicosta is dark, so I ruled out L. richardsi).
I can not separate it at the moment, but I attached two more pictures hoping that they can be useful for identification.

the hairs should be characteristic but you are in Portugal, so it is better to double check Calliphoridae. I agree with Lucilia ampullacea but maybe my opinion doesn't matter. Some people want opinions from experts only.

I have two female specimens so i can help with a female too if you find one. I love Calliphoridae and Lucilia are very pretty flies to me.

I hope that you have a pleasant day.
