Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius, ) occurs on every continent and is closely associated with carrion and decaying material in human. The Oriental Latrine Fly, Chrysomya megacephala Fabricius, , is notorious in this regard. Adults of the synanthropic form of this species (see below) are. Abstract. Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya rufifacies are two predominant necrophagous species in Taiwan. Larvae of the latter can prey on other.

Figure 10A shows the predation actions of a third-instar larva of C.

The fly infests corpses soon after death, making it important to forensic science. Adults breed mostly in carrionbut they are also attracted to garbage and faeces.

Chrysomya megacephala – Wikipedia

However, our results did not completely agree with previous studies, and we suspect that the difference was partially caused by different experimental designs and different biological characters of different blow fly colonies. Forensic Entomology Class Lecture.

Although maximum reductions in the time of larval development under density effects were similar in the two species, C. For the mixed-species cultures, an equal ratio of larval numbers of the two species was placed in the same cup, and the experiments were performed at the same density and rearing condition as in the single-species culture. Chrysomya rufifacies Macquart as a forensic-important fly species megacepuala Thailand: To understand the role that predation plays in larval competition, a simple experiment was designed to observe the predatory behavior of C.


Reigada and Godoy performed an experiment to understand the dispersal and predation behaviors of blow fly larvae in mixed-species culture; their results showed that C.

Chrysomya megacephala broedt in rottend vlees en kan ziektes overbrengen.

Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. As for larval survivorship, the survivorship of C. Constant vs Fluctuating Temperatures. Both of these species did contain malathion, but there had been no previous record of organophosphates in their larvae.

If we evaluate the relative magnitude of the reduction of production in Fig. Larval predatory by Chrysomya albiceps on Cochliomyia macellaria, Chrysomya megacephala and Chdysomya putoria. Chrysomya megacephala and Ch.

In these areas sun-drying is the major method of preserving fish, as ice is typically unaffordable. Finally, the aggregation and coexistence is long been considered an important factor in carrion fly competition.


It is a warm-weather fly with a greenish-blue metallic box-like body. Prey choice by facultative predator larvae of Chrysomya albiceps Diptera: The developmental stages of C.

For the interspecific competition effect on different larval stages proposed in this article, we clearly found that the results exactly reflected the behavioral characteristics of these two species: Larval secretions and excretions were left on the food after the larvae had fed, and this may have altered the nearby microenvironment.

Developmental data of blowflies can be used to estimate the short-term postmortem interval PMInormally a few hours to a few days Catts and Goff In our studies, both species of C.

During summer, it may be the most abundant carrion -breeding blowfly chrysmya certain parts of its range. Ixodidae and Rhipicephalus decoloratus Infesting Cattle in Uganda.

October Learn how and when to remove this template message. Carefully apply the body length or body weight of maggots as the indicator of larval development, especially when two or more species coexisted on the carrion.
