In the south of France, on 16 October 2019.
Dry garrigue area. On ivy.
13 mm long.
I think Calliphoridae, close to Calliphora?
Thank you for your help in identifying us.

Calliphora vomitoria (Calliphoridae).
It has black 'cheeks' and a yellow 'beard'.

Calliphora vicina has reddish cheeks and a black beard.

Thank you very much Tristram,
I carefully note the differences between Calliphora vicina and vomitoria.
