"NETHERLANDS: NB, Udenhout, de Brand, 25.iv-2.v.2020, malaise trap"

I not sure where this specimen, functioning as transportation for a Phthiraptera, belongs. Lacking large bristles at the last abdominal segments, I'm inclined to call this a calliphorid, but I'm not sure at all.
The specimen is photographed while floating in alcohol.

I totally skipped the option Muscidae. Now it was pointed out as an option to me, and I was told to check the hypopleurals, it became clear that without hypopleurals being present, Calliphoridae is not an option.
Could it even be 'just' Musca domestica?

Jan, is it in alcohol?
If so, I think Musca is correct.

Hello Nikita,
Yes, when taken the pictures, the specimen was floating in alcohol, which of course has an effect on the colors.
