Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Musca domestica photo for Wikipedia
Posted by Kahis on 10-11-2007 02:05
The Wikipedia page for Musca domestica
lacks good photos of the fly, which is a shame as it is probably the most accessed fly page. I have deleted various photos of calliphorids, sarcophagids fannids, etc. from the page during the last months. Finally, I found a photo
of a Musca
female which is at least close to M. domestica
The problem is, I am still not 100% sure this isn't M. autumnalis
. The width of the orbitals seems rather intermediate and I don't have large samples of females of the two species to compare.
So, could someone either confirm that the fly in the photo linked to above is Musca domestica
, or upload a good photograph or two of the species to Wikimedia Commons?
