Thank you both. For someone who photographs and tries to ID everything from slime molds to monkeys and everything in between, Withworth's key is unfortunately too technical; I simply don't know the technical jargon for dipteran morphology. Besides, I only have photos, no specimens (no permit).

But knowing that it is some Lucilia already helps quite a lot. TumbsUp
