Larval morphology, development and forensic importance of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae) in Europe: a rare species or just overlooked?
Morphology of all larval instars of S. nudiseta is documented in detail by using a combination of light and scanning electron microscopy and characters allowing identification from other forensically important Muscidae are listed. Expand
Predatory behavior of Synthesiomyia nudiseta larvae (Diptera: Muscidae) on several necrophagous blowfly species (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
The predatory behavior of S. nudiseta on the most abundant blowfly larvae in sarcosaprophagous communities in southwestern Europe is investigated and its effect on the estimation of postmortem interval (PMI) is discussed. Expand
First Life Table of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae) From Palearctic Region for Analyzing the Effect on Its Dispersal Ability.
Results indicate that S. nudiseta cannot be considered an r-strategist as the most common synanthropic necrophagous blowflies due to its predatory behavior; however, its invasive and colonist abilities are discussed. Expand
Hermetia illucens and Hermetia fenestrata (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) Colonization of “Spoiled” Stingless Bee Geniotrigona thoracica (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Hives in Malaysia
This study provides the first identified record of H. fenestrata colonizing a “spoiled” stingless bee colony in Malaysia, and adult and larval morphological differences between both species and the roles of both species in bee nest decomposition are discussed. Expand
Review of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae) as a useful tool in forensic entomology
The identification, geographical distribution and biology of this species is reviewed in order to provide better support to investigations involving this fly. Expand
Post-mortem Interval Estimation in a Forensic Case with Two Predatory Species: Chrysomya albiceps and Synthesiomyia nudiseta
There are many different interactions between the fauna on a corpse, such as competition between or predation on the larvae of necrophagous species of Diptera [1–3]. Competition is more common thanExpand
