You can't assume it is caesar, there are other species.
My Flickr photos...
Thanks, Ophrys. The trouble is that I have only one ref book with Insects in, so not enough info. to differentiate!
But thanks again.
Sorry, I should have asked - do I need to re-submit this as simply 'Lucilia'? Can I still retain the id as 'Greenbottle'? I'm very unsure about insects (although I am pleased with the photo!)
Greenbottle is fine, but better to redo as Lucilia, yes. They are not easy, these 'common' flies and books and many websites give you the impression that Lucilia caesar is the only one...the fun of flies is that there are so many and they look so similar. Bristles on the legs and so on is what it is all about!
I think it is Lucilia, by the way...but there are other genera under the title of Greenbottle, as well.
Thanks for this - will resubmit. I'm a wild flower addict really, so daren't take on insects as well, although it's all interesting!
