There was a low interspecific sequence divergence in six species groups so that for 16 out of the 99 species, the use of COI barcodes as species identifier should be done with care, and it is illustrated how such reference databases can improve local reference databases for forensic entomologists.
Utility of GenBank and the Barcode of Life Data Systems (BOLD) for the identification of forensically important Diptera from Belgium and France
Fly larvae living on dead corpses can be used to estimate post-mortem intervals and some forensically important fly species are not, or insufficiently, represented in the reference libraries.
