Good evening,

I think this fly is a Scatophaga sp, but not stercoraria, because the body and thighs are not so hairy.
What's your opinion ?

Hmm, I think it could still be stercoraria. It varies substantially and especially females can be rather sparsely haired. The color is also very variable, from golden yellow (the 'classical' stercoraria) to green-grey to brown.

Thanks Kahis,
Well, it could be S. stercoraria, but is this picture quite good to say "It is S. stercoraria" ?
What are the important details to see for this gender ?
