Just another... NOT!
Now I feel I need to take pictures of all Blow Flies I see!

Thank you Ben!

 
Indeed!
Great find. Another new species for the site. Apparently a pretty uncommon one in North America too.

 
Ironic
The species name means common.

Bellardia vulgaris I think
Upon further investigation, this appears to be the other Bellardia known from North America, Bellardia vulgaris (Robineau-Desvoidy). This species has been collected from New Jersey according to Whitworth (2006). Compare to following specimen photo:

I think this is Cynomya cadeverina in weird lighting.
