Thread subject: :: Calliphora non-vicina? (23.03.23)

Hi J├╝rgen, I'm quite sure, that your last photo shows a male C. vicina: Tergit 3 has a shifting pattern and basicosta doesn't seem to be black (vicina: "basicosta pale, can be infuscated, brown but not entirely black", O. Sivell). To be "dead sure" you should try to make clear lateral shots, showing anterior spiracle, gena etc.
