Abstract Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Wulp) (Diptera: Muscidae) was identified during the course of three indoor medicolegal forensic entomology investigations in the state of Texas, one in 2011 from Hayes County, TX, and two in 2015 from Harris County, TX. In all cases, mites were found in association with the sample and subsequently identified as Myianoetus muscarum (L., 1758) (Acariformes: Histiostomatidae). This report represents the first records of a mite associated with S. nudiseta in the… 
Review of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae) as a useful tool in forensic entomology
TLDR
The identification, geographical distribution and biology of this species is reviewed in order to provide better support to investigations involving this fly.
New Record of the Species Synthesiomyia Nudiseta (van der Wulp, 1883) (Diptera, Muscidae) with Forensic Study from Kerbala City, Iraq
TLDR
Investigation in the carcasses of dogs and rats in four different localities of Kerbala governorate indicated the appearance of S. nudiseta only in the spring and autumn seasons within the urban and agricultural areas, as well as the appearances of this species on the bodies of dogs only without rats.
First record of a phoretic mite (Histiostomatidae) on a cave dwelling cricket (Phalangopsidae) from Brazil
TLDR
The first record of a phoretic mite of the genus Histiostoma associated with an individual of Endecous ( endecous ) alejomesai (Orthoptera: Phalangopsidae) is reported from a Brazilian cave.
Macrocheles species (Acari: Macrochelidae) associated with human corpses in Europe
TLDR
Three human corpses, one from Sweden and two from Spain, have been analysed for the occurrence of Macrochelidae species, and Macrocheles muscaedomesticae and M. perglaber are reported for the first time from the Iberian Peninsula.

TLDR
A retrospective analysis was made of 203 forensic entomology cases analyzed during the course of medicolegal death investigations performed by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Houston, TX, USA from January 2013 through April 2016 to make observations on a number of different geographical and species-level trends.
Insects and associated arthropods analyzed during medicolegal death investigations in Harris County, Texas, USA: January 2013-April 2016
TLDR
A retrospective analysis was made of 203 forensic entomology cases analyzed during the course of medicolegal death investigations performed by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Houston, TX, USA from January 2013 through April 2016 to provide valuable casework related species data for Harris County, TX and nearby areas on the Gulf Coast.
1099-1104 Heo CC.pmd
This is the first record of phoretic histiostomatid mites found on a forensically important blow fly species, Chrysomya villeneuvi (Diptera: Calliphoridae), collected from decomposing rabbit
Acari community in association with delayed pig carrion decomposition.
TLDR
Data from this study indicated that the rate of nutrient flow into the soil impacted associated arthropod communities; however, detecting such shifts depends on the taxonomic resolution being applied.

An occurrence of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Wulp) (Diptera: Muscidae) from a human corpse in a high-rise building in Malaysia: a case report.
TLDR
This case is significant as it demonstrates that this species can locate a dead body even in a high- rise building and further findings of fly distribution especially in high-rise buildings should be reported to assist entomologists in PMI analysis.
Larval morphology, development and forensic importance of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae) in Europe: a rare species or just overlooked?
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The present communication provides an account of all the early stages of Synthesiomyia nudiseta, which was not among the larvae of some unknown muscids described by Banks (1912).

TLDR
All population parameters suggested that S. nudiseta exhibits the r-strategist characteristics.
Experimental evidence that the mite Poecilochirus davydovae (Mesostigmata: Parasitidae) eats the eggs of its beetle host
TLDR
Results support the hypothesis that P. davydovae is a specialist predator feeding on the eggs of N. vespiloides, and Beetles experimentally stripped of deuteronymphs of Poecilochirus had larger apparent clutch sizes than beetles carrying mites.
Vital Statistics of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Diptera: Muscidae)
TLDR
The life cycle and population parameters of Synthesiomyia nudiseta (Wulp) were studied under 2 constant temperatures and the average durations of the egg, larval, pupal, prereproductive, and reproductive adult stages were studied.
Factors in Phoretic Association of a Mite and Fly
TLDR
Combined rearing of the mite Myianoetus muscarum, and the fly Muscina stabulans, has revealed adaptations of the hypopus to a series of fly factors that favor the mites' dispersal.
