Homicide investigations often depend on the determination of a minimum post-mortem interval (PMImin) by forensic entomologists. The age of the most developed insect larvae (mostly blow fly larvae) gives reasonably reliable information about the minimum time a person has been dead. Methods such as isomegalen diagrams or ADH calculations can have problems in their reliability, so we established in this study a new growth model to calculate the larval age of Lucilia sericata (MEIGEN, 1826).
