I have this fly that I need correctly identified. I have identified it as the Phaonia Palpata Fly; however, I believe that’s incorrect as that particular species of fly usually resides in England. I hope you can help me identify it.

Dear N,
This is a Flesh Fly in the family Sarcophagidae, but we are uncertain of the species.
