Hi.

The Wikipedia page for Musca domestica lacks good photos of the fly, which is a shame as it is probably the most accessed fly page. I have deleted various photos of calliphorids, sarcophagids fannids, etc. from the page during the last months. Finally, I found a photo of a Musca female which is at least close to M. domestica.

The problem is, I am still not 100% sure this isn't M. autumnalis. The width of the orbitals seems rather intermediate and I don't have large samples of females of the two species to compare.

So, could someone either confirm that the fly in the photo linked to above is Musca domestica, or upload a good photograph or two of the species to Wikimedia Commons?

Best wishes
Jere

let's go hunting for Musca domestica! Smile
Why don't ask to authors that took photos to M. domestica (see the gallery) if they grant the photo.. Wink

I have lots of Musca domestica photos here. They can be used for non-profit purposes without limitations.

I think the pic at Wikimedia shows domestica female, not autumnalis.

Of the Musca that occur in Belgium, this specimen is closest to domestica. I don't think there's anyone out there who will argue with you Jere! Wink
