Photographed in Warwickshire on the 22nd October 2022. On fence on farm track bridge over brook.

There seemed to be two different species of Calliphoridae on the bridge this one and a larger brighter one. Though it wouldn't surprise me if they were the same.

Basicosta seems yellow, hence C. vicina.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
