Software predicts Tachinidae indet. with probability 77%.
Are these Tachinidae? If so, which species? Size approx 5-6mm.

The spftware should be told there are only very few Tachinidae witg strong bristles on lower part of the parafacial.

So these are Sarcophagidae.

Thanks Theo, I already thought of "Dambordvliegen", but the size (5-6mm) was smaller than I usually see them.

They might be even only 4 mm.
This is not Sarcoohaga s.s., but something like subgenus Helicophagella.

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

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

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!

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
