This study provides the first micromorphological description of all preimaginal stages of S. (L.) cultellata using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the results of which allow the morphology of the main features to be followed during the immature life cycle.
DNA barcoding of two forensically important fleshfly species (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) from Spain and notes on barcoding success within genus Sarcophaga Meigen, 1826
A first analysis of 61 species of the genus Sarcophaga with all available information obtained from GenBank and BOLD databases showed that success in correct identification raised up to 94 and 99% under different threshold values of the Kp2 parameter, and showed that current division of SARCophaga into subgenera is worth to be revised as many of these sub genera might be polyphyletic.
