Thread subject: :: Sarcophaga variegata

Thank you Phil. In Chris's photo of S. variegata the vesica looks very narrow to me. Also the shape of the ventral plate of my specimen seems to best match the one of S. carnaria. But this is the first time I'm trying to interpret the genitalia of a Sarcophaga so I have no experience at all. S. carnaria is not known from Iberia, so S. variegata also makes more sense from a distribution point of view.
