Thread subject: :: Sarcophaga variegata

Posted by johnes81 on 18-10-2019 23:47

Hello Rui,

it is certainly not carnaria simply because of the shape and angle of the vesica.

I don't need anyone's photos to judge either species because i've dissected the genitalia of both. I have also properly cleared the genitalia for better viewing, thus, i don't recommend using those photos for your determinations. I will attach a photo of properly cleared genitalia of S. carnaria for reference.

S. variegata will have a flap covering the distiphallus . I see a dark structure twisted toward the end of the distiphallus and the vesica match variegata much better than carnaria.

Best wishes,
