Found in my house in NE of France (57925 Distroff) the 25/03/2019.
Lenght body : 9 mm.
At first I thought it was a fly of the Tachnidae family but now rather the Calliphoridae family the genus Pollenia ?

Hello Louis, yes, it's a female Pollenia with black basicosta. Difficult to be sure but perhaps P. labialis.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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
