Surface ultrastructure of the puparia of the blow fly, Lucilia cuprina, and flesh fly, Liosarcophaga dux, are presented utilizing scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Emphasis was focused on characteristic features of the puparia that could be used for differentiation from other forensically important fly species. The puparium of L. cuprina typically measures 6.2±0.2 mm in length and 2.3±0.1 mm in width. Each anterior spiracle contains a single row of 5–7 papillae. The intersegmental spines… CONTINUE READING
