Hi, your local entomologist might be right but it's one of a group which comprises of quite a few very similar species that can only be identified by examining the male genitalia. You need a specimen in the hand to be sure.

Ok, I'm unsure how he came up with that then - I'll ask him. Thanks for the heads-up Chris.
Chris, my contact agrees with you and says that it should be referred to as Sarcophaga
carnaria s. lat. (sensu lato). Which of the two (species sensu lato, or genus) would you recommend?
Hi, as we can't be sure it should really stay at genus, which is the norm on iSpot. Regards Chris.
Will do. Thanks Chris.
Less is sometimes more :-) Very Tricky genus even with the scrutiny Chris points out
