Abstract Cochliomyia Townsend includes several abundant and one of the most broadly distributed, blow flies in the Americas, and is of significant economic and forensic importance. For decades, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) and Cochliomyia macellaria (Fabricius) have received attention as livestock parasites and primary indicator species in forensic entomology. However, Cochliomyia minima Shannon and Cochliomyia aldrichi Del Ponte have only been subject to basic taxonomy and faunistic…

Assessing Species Identification of the Genus Chrysomya (Diptera: Calliphoridae) by DNA Barcoding
  • Ting Ma, Jia Huang
  • Biology
    Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington
  • 2019
TLDR
The results indicate that only up to 20 of 26 Chrysomya species can be distinctly separated from the others and with the integration of other information and a secondary genetic marker, the remaining ambiguous Chrysomy species are expected to be correctly separated.
DNA-barcoding of forensically important blow flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) in the Caribbean Region
TLDR
This study demonstrates the importance of employing a second nuclear marker for barcoding analyses and species delimitation of calliphorids, and the power of molecular data in combination with a complete reference database to enable identification of taxonomically and geographically diverse insects of forensic importance.
Characterization of New Molecular Markers of Three Botflies Parasitizing Cervid Hosts
TLDR
Characterization of COI, 28S rDNA, ITS1, and ITS2 in Cephenemyia stimulator from roe deer and in Cepingemyia auribarbis and Pharyngomyia picta shows that the characterized sequences differentiate the species and genera of Oestridae.
Molecular Characterization of the 2016 New World Screwworm (Diptera: Calliphoridae) Outbreak in the Florida Keys
TLDR
A lack of success in answering two questions regarding the FL Keys outbreak speaks to the need for finer-scale genetic or genomic assessments of NWS population structure, which would facilitate source determination of potential future outbreaks.
Do longer sequences improve the accuracy of identification of forensically important Calliphoridae species?
TLDR
Sequences of 4 different genes of 13 different fly species collected during forensic experiments were evaluated for their capability to identify correctly the species and it was shown that this rule does not work for the species L. caesar and L. illustris.
Genetic Diversity and Phylogenetic Relationships of Coevolving Symbiont-Harboring Insect Trypanosomatids, and Their Neotropical Dispersal by Invader African Blowflies (Calliphoridae)
TLDR
The absence of correlation between parasite diversity and geographic and genetic distances, with identical genotypes of A. deanei found in the Neotropic and Afrotropic, is consistent with disjunct distribution due to the recent human-mediated transoceanic dispersal of Angomonas by Chrysomya.
Testing the Accuracy of Vegetation-Based Ecoregions for Predicting the Species Composition of Blow Flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
TLDR
The vegetation-based ecoregions only reflect the blow fly species’ distributions to a certain extent, meaning that care must be taken when undertaking ecological biogeographical studies using regionalization based on organisms other than the focal taxa because vegetation does not always reflect fauna species composition.
Estudio molecular de seis cepas de Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) (Diptera: Calliphoridae) y Cochliomyia macellaria
TLDR
Molecularly characterize six strains of Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) and the Coch Liomyia macellaria species using the mtDNA sequences using the mitochondrial genome NADH4-tRNA-NADH5.

Chrysomyinae (Diptera: Calliphoridae) is monophyletic: a molecular systematic analysis
The subfamily Chrysomyinae includes blowflies of considerable ecological and applied importance. Previous extensive morphological investigations have affirmed chrysomyine monophyly, but did not
The molecular systematics of blowflies and screwworm flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) using 28S rRNA, COX1 and EF-1α: insights into the evolution of dipteran parasitism
TLDR
This study utilizes nucleotide sequence data from the protein-coding genes COX1 (mitochondrial) and EF1α (nuclear), and the 28S rRNA (nuclear) gene, from 57 blowfly taxa to improve resolution of key evolutionary relationships within the family Calliphoridae.
Interaction between Chrysomya rufifacies and Cochliomyia macellaria (Diptera: Calliphoridae): the possible consequences of an invasion
TLDR
The interaction of Chrysomya rufifacies with native carrion flies in Texas, USA, was investigated by reducing oviposition by the invader on rabbit carcasses outdoors and the results suggest that C. macellaria populations will decline where the two species co-occur and support the hypothesis that the carrions community is saturated with species.

TLDR
The seasonal fluctuation of this species in the Pantanal region, Central-Western Brazil is described, showing a bimodal behavior with peaks in May-July (late autumn/early winter) and October-December (spring).
Description of Third Instars of Cochliomyia minima (Diptera: Calliphoridae) from West Indies, and Updated Identification Key
TLDR
The larvae of C. minima are found to be very similar to those of Cochliomyia macellaria F., but the former can be easily identified by the oral sclerite completely pigmented, visible as a spike between mouth hooks.
Phylogenetic analysis of New World screwworm fly, Cochliomyia hominivorax, suggests genetic isolation of some Caribbean island populations following colonization from South America
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of populations from across the Caribbean, South America and Texas indicates sub‐structuring of fly populations on several of the larger Caribbean islands, suggesting a period of isolation and/or founder effects following colonization from South America.

TLDR
A vouchered reference collection and DNA sequence database is developed to facilitate DNA‐ based identification of forensically important flies of the genus Lucilia in the continental United States and concludes that DNA‐based identification is likely to be successful for the other seven species.

TLDR
The COI barcode sequence was found to be suitable for the identification of Chrysomya species from the east coast of Australia and was used to verify four cases of specimen misidentification.
