Photographed very recently in Zhejiang China. A Calliphoridae species or something else? Thanks!

For me, it looks more like one of the Tachinidae: swollen subscutellum, red scutellum, hairy eyes - but I'm not sure.

Thank you! Maybe you're right as I wasn't able to find a calliphorid that matches the fly.

Wow, you're right! Thank you so much! I totally forgot about it! They were photographed in a different hill but yes they look similar and are very likely conspecific. Thank you for reminding me of it! TumbsUp

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
