Another micrograph from my archives. This shows part of the head and the proboscis of a Blowfly or Bluebottle genus Calliphora with the unattractive specific name vomitoria.

Comments to Bill Ells welcomed.


Editor's note: other related resources of interest.

An article on the blowfly by Wim van Egmond is in the Micscape Library.
