A List of Current Valid Blow Fly Names (Diptera: Calliphoridae) in the Americas South of Mexico with Key to the Brazilian Species
This paper lists all species of Calliphoridae found in the Americas south of Mexico, based on reports in the literature between the years 1960 and 2012, and an identification key for the species that occur in Brazil is presented. Expand
Chrysomya albiceps (Wiedemann) and Hemilucilia segmentaria (Fabricius) (Diptera, Calliphoridae) used to estimate the postmortem interval in a forensic case in Minas Gerais, Brazil
The post-embryonary development stage of the immature collected on the body was estimated as the difference between the total development time and the time required for them to become adults in the lab, for the first time that H. segmentaria is used to estimate the postmortem interval in a forensic case.

A Checklist of Calliphoridae Blowflies (Insecta, Diptera) Associated with a Pig Carrion in Central Brazil *
Although the Cerrado is the second major Brazilian biome, few studies have been undertaken about its entomofauna, and the main goal of this exploratory study was to identify and to catalog the blowfly species associated with a pig carcass. Expand
The Black Soldier‐fly, Hermetia illucens (Diptera, Stratiomyidae), Used to Estimate the Postmortem Interval in a Case in Amapá State, Brazil *
The estimation of the postmortem interval (PMI) based on the life cycle of the black soldier‐fly in a case in northern Brazil is consistent with the hypothesis that the child was killed immediately after abduction. Expand
A Forensic Entomology Case from the Amazon Rain Forest of Brazil

Diversity and Spatial Distribution of Predacious Dolichopodidae (Insecta: Diptera) on Organic Vegetable Fields and Adjacent Habitats in Brazil
The importance of less disturbed habitats over time in the agricultural landscape, such as agroforestry and native vegetation, as complementary habitats for the maintenance and conservation of dolichopodid species in particular is verified, a scenario to be tested for other insect groups. Expand
