Forensically important flesh fly species in Thailand: morphology and developmental rate
TLDR
It is revealed that the most distinctive is the posterior spiracle, followed by the number of papillae on the anterior spiracle of S. dux Thomson, S. ruficornis, and Sarcophaga (Boettcherisca) peregrina are the species of greatest forensic importance.
Morphological descriptions for the identification of Hypopygiopsis tumrasvini Kurahashi (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
TLDR
Morphological descriptions of larvae and adults of Hypopygiopsis tumrasvini Kurahashi, a blow fly species that may be of forensic importance, are presented, with emphasis placed on important characteristic features used for larval identification.
SPECIES COMPOSITION OF CARRION BLOW FLIES IN NORTHERN THAILAND: ALTITUDE APPRAISAL
TLDR
The species likely to prevail in highland areas are C. pinguis, C. thanomthini, Hy.
Do climatic and physical factors affect populations of the blow fly Chrysomya megacephala and house fly Musca domestica?
TLDR
Fly populations can be collected throughout most of the year with a peak in late summer, which shows a positive relation to temperature but negative correlation with relative humidity, while the density of house fly was association with altitude and land use types.
Ommatidia of blow fly, house fly, and flesh fly: implication of their vision efficiency
TLDR
Scanning electron microscopy analysis of adult flies revealed the sexual dimorphism in the compound eye of blow flies and dense postulate appearance was detected in the external surface of the corneal lens of the ommatidia of C. megacephala, C. rufifacies, and C. nigripes.
Survey of the Synanthropic Flies Associated with Human Habitations in Ubon Ratchathani Province of Northeast Thailand
TLDR
Various species of synanthropic flies with close associations to humans and with the ability to transmit human pathogens in Ubon Ratchathani province are identified, providing crucial information that may be used for developing control and sanitation management plans in this particular area.
Differentiation between Lucilia cuprina and Hemipyrellia ligurriens (Diptera: Calliphoridae) larvae for use in forensic entomology applications
TLDR
In this study, the use of three main characteristics, the posterior spiracle, the dorsal spines between the first and second thoracic segments, and the cephalopharyngeal skeleton, allows for identification of both fly species, with the number of papillae on anterior spiracle being a supportive characteristic in some cases.
Observations on morphology of immature Lucilia porphyrina (Diptera: Calliphoridae), a fly species of forensic importance
TLDR
The key for identifying third instar of forensically important flies in Thailand has been updated to include L. porphyrina, and several features that are shared by L. cuprina need certain identification to distinguish between them.
Morphology and identification of fly eggs: application in forensic entomology.
TLDR
The key for identifying these eggs together with other reported species in Thailand has been updated and their island structure was apparent at the inner surface of the upright hatching pleats.
