Hi together,

yesterday, when mounting and IDing some bees & wasps, a flat fly joined me and landed in my hairs.
So I used the opportunity and mounted her also.

I guess, it's an Ornithomya-species, but I'm not an expert on flies. Is there any key (pdf/in the www) available for IDing this group?
Fly is about 8 - 10 mm in size, is this already indicating O. avicularia?

Thanks for your help,

Marc T

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
