Hello everyone,

I photographed this fly today on the bank of a river in southwest Germany. I estimate the size to be 8 mm. I think it's a Lucilia. Can you say more?

Greetings Siggi

Hi Siggi, this is most probably a female Lucilia caesar.
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
