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.

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.
