Photographed very recently in Zhejiang China. A Calliphoridae species or something else? Thanks!

For me, it looks more like one of the Tachinidae: swollen subscutellum, red scutellum, hairy eyes - but I'm not sure.

Thank you! Maybe you're right as I wasn't able to find a calliphorid that matches the fly.

Wow, you're right! Thank you so much! I totally forgot about it! They were photographed in a different hill but yes they look similar and are very likely conspecific. Thank you for reminding me of it! |t
