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

Thank you very much John and Eric!
Greenbottle flies are so difficult to distinguish!
