Sarcophaga nodosa feeding on decaying flesh Sarcophagid showing basally plumose arista Members of the subfamily Sarcophaginae are small to large flies 0.
Other key features include red eyes and a bristled abdomen. The posthumeral bristles are one or two in number, with the outermost pair missing. The presutural bristle is located lower than the notopleural bristle, and closer to the notopleural bristle than to the outermost posthumeral bristle. The presutural bristle is located higher than or level with the posthumeral bristle. The hindmost posthumeral bristle is located even with or toward the midline from the presutural bristle.
Four notopleural bristles are present and arranged in the order - short, long, short, long - from front to rear. The eyes are smooth and very rarely hairy. The arista is plumose in its basal half, or rarely pubescent or glabrous. Taxonomy[ edit ] The family contains three subfamilies , the Miltogramminae , the Paramacronychiinae , and the Sarcophaginae , containing between them genera.
About species are in this family. Biology[ edit ] Craticulina is a genus of Miltogramminae. This species is a kleptoparasite of Philanthus. The arista is basally pubescent. A few species feed on larger vertebrate carcasses. Flesh fly maggots occasionally eat other larvae, although this is usually because the other larvae are smaller and get in the way. Flesh flies and their larvae are also known to eat decaying vegetable matter and excrement , and they may be found around compost piles and pit latrines.
Flesh flies, particularly Wohlfahrtia magnifica , can also cause myiasis in animals, mostly to sheep, and can give them blood poisoning , or asymptomatic leprosy infections. Identification[ edit ] Generally, only males of this family can reliably be identified to species, and then only by examination of dissected genitalia.
