Another metallic green fly, more hairy than 1st one. has plumose arista, Meron has row of bristles. Is this a calliphorid or tachinid ?

Both Tachinidae and. alliphoridae have meral bristles.
Check for a swollen postscutellum ( —> Tachinidae).

However, I think all metallic Oriental Tachindae have a bare arista.
So it should be a Calliphorid...
