Hello kuv,

such a facial keel is a good indication of a male Pollenia pediculata.

you'd need to check the underside of the wing to be scientifically accurate.

Best wishes,
John and Nini. Naturalists not experts.

Thank you very much John Smile.
A shot of that underside point is really difficult! (...and I think the fly will not like it. Grin)

The underside of the wing is important,because some mistakes are made with wing vein variations.It isn't as easy to Id as other flies.Blow-flies are variable.
