this Lucilia (?) was found Sept. 3, '20 in a moist area beside a pond in a flat and open area east of Hannover, Germany. Is an ID possible?
Thanks a lot for answers!

Haleun attached the following image:

No, clearly a different species.
So please split the thread into two, otherwise it gets most confusing.

Thank you

Hello Hans, it's difficult to be sure as we cannot see the first tergites or the palps, but I'll try (with big ?):
I think the basicosta is dark and the fly has 3 post acrs - so it could be a male L. silvarum. The distance between the eyes supports that: then frons of L. caesar is distinctly smaller and that of L. bufonivora visibly larger.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

Hello Eric,
thank you very much! You've made the best of it! Great! So I add a cf. to the name.

Your thankful Hans

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank

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