Hi to all!

A cadaver full of maggots... always good for filling the camera's memory card. ;-)

I'm not even sure about the family (Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae, ...?). At least this determineable? Size of the biggest (roughly estimated): 1.5 cm or a little more

Found 19.6.2015, Austria, East Tyrol, Valley Gschloesstal, about 1680m a.s.l. (Coordinates 47.1262072N, 12.4667414E)

Most likely Calliphoridae. If it is in the sun, probably Lucilia, if it is in the shade, probably Calliphora.

Thanks Tony!

Difficult to tell about sun or shadow. When I was there it was cloudy, but the cadaver was lying rather free, only the mountain slope (northern) could have made relevant shadows. But in June I don't think so.
Best greetings
Rupert

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
