Hi to all!

A cadaver full of maggots... always good for filling the camera's memory card. ;-)

I'm not even sure about the family (Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae, ...?). At least this determineable? Size of the biggest (roughly estimated): 1.5 cm or a little more

Found 19.6.2015, Austria, East Tyrol, Valley Gschloesstal, about 1680m a.s.l. (Coordinates 47.1262072N, 12.4667414E)

Most likely Calliphoridae. If it is in the sun, probably Lucilia, if it is in the shade, probably Calliphora.

Thanks Tony!

Difficult to tell about sun or shadow. When I was there it was cloudy, but the cadaver was lying rather free, only the mountain slope (northern) could have made relevant shadows. But in June I don't think so.
Best greetings
Rupert

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.

28.08.19 14:29
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
