Dear Forum,

this fly was found on Prunus laurocerasus. Best picture, sorry for the quality... It was nicely metallilc-gree (not very clear in this picture).

Is it Calliphoridae? Any more specic ID possible?

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