Hi, pale basicosta, 3 acr post and each fronto-orbital plate less than half the width of frontal vitta: most probably L. sericata female.

From: Blow Flies by Olga Sivell - highly recommended for Calliphoridae, Polleniidae, Rhiniidae and affordable, I think.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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