Thread subject: :: Metopia argyrocephala? --> Metopia rondaniana (male)

Posted by ukursawe on 14-07-2023 09:17


This fly took a rest on the wall of our house in the late afternoon.

I think it could be a member of the Sarcophagidae family. My guess would be Metopia argyrocephala, though I have no idea, if it is a male or female. Can that be confirmed or excluded from the attached image and/or is a determination possible?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), 13.07.2023, app. 6 mm

Greetings, Uli
