A green metallic ‘greenbottle’ fly is the commonest of the very similar Lucilia species. It can be identified by the pale basicosta and a single anterodorsal bristle on the mid tibia. It also has a wide frons and much dusting on the thorax. It has 3 acrostichal bristles and 3 dorsocentral bristles after the suture on the thorax.
