I have photographed this fly in Asturias, Spain (August). Length about 9-10mm.
Is it a Lucilia sp? if so which species could it be?
Thanks for help,
FRV attached the following image:

In North America the single postsutural acrostichal would exclude Lucilia.

Hi FRV, could be Neomyia cf. cornicina (Muscidae) - frons seems to be green, too.

Cheers Eric

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.
