Thread subject: :: Sarcophaga variegata

Hi John,

Thank you very much for the photo of the genitalia of S. carnaria. I think I was too focused on the shape of the vesica rather than its orientation and the general shape of distiphallus. Now I see that, although the vesica on Chris's photo of S. variegata seems very narrow, the rest of the distiphallus is indeed very similar to my specimen.
I also have a copy of Sarcophagidae of Fennoscandia and Denmark but forgot to have a look because, for the fauna of Portugal, it makes more sense to use Richet et al. But now I'll have a look at that one too. :)

Thank you both very much!
