July 16th - CANCELED

Hi everyone...

So sorry for the late notice: I was on auto-pilot this past week and made the most recent post without remembering that I will in fact be on an airplane during our usual time, on my way to the 10th International Congress of Dipterology in Reno, NV, next week.

I will see you on the 23rd, NOT on the 16th.

I'll be joining, Ken Kneidel. Interested in any common sarcophagids that are identifiable to species.

@kenkneidel happy to hear it! Unfortunately, there are no Nearctic species that I know of that can be reliably identified to species from photos. Tomorrow, we are working to confirm and refute suggested identifications of Musca domestica, which is often suggested for sarcos.

That's nice to know, I'm no longer frustrated, more like relieved. I may not attend then since I think I have a good handle on Musca domestica. I see you saw this post https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/173849324. Interesting to me I grew up in northcentral Pennsylvania and house flies were everywhere. I've been in NC for decades and have only reliably seen two. I saw my first in a waiting room at a medical facility. Not having a vial, I caught it in my hand then let it go in my car when I drove home. When home I captured it (it fortunately hung out at my windshield) then identified it. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/18888126 I never thought I'd have to go to such lengths to get a housefly!
