Thread subject: :: Calliphoridae: Female of Protophormia terraenovae? No, it's Lucilia sp.

Hi Kuv, it's not a Protophormia terraenovae:
Calypters are white and there are distinct acrs pre- and postsutural.
After some research I think it's a Lucilia sp.
(basicosta dark, palps pale brown, 2 acr post: could be a L. bufonivora, although the frons seems to be too large and should be narrower than one eye - from "Blow Flies" by Olga Sivell)
