Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius, ) occurs on every continent and is closely associated with carrion and decaying material in human. The Oriental Latrine Fly, Chrysomya megacephala Fabricius, , is notorious in this regard. Adults of the synanthropic form of this species (see below) are. Abstract.

Problem in estimation of postmortem interval resulting from wrapping of the corpse: The developmental stages of C.

All of the above reasons led us to conclude that C. The long adult lifespan means that the parents are present to rear the offspring, ensuring their survival. This result further indicates that a temporary competitive advantage can only be obtained by C.

When considering body size and the mobility and defense abilities of C. Afbeeldingen Chrysomya megacephala op Wikimedia Commons. Adult males were randomly sampled and identified 5 d after emergence for species reconfirmation, and some males and females of the same species were kept in a cm 3 rearing cage for mating. Larval predatory by Chrysomya albiceps on Cochliomyia macellaria, Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya putoria. Maggots were reared on an artificial diet consisting of a mixture of megacepha,a meal: Results showed the effect of C.

In addition, the effects on different larval stages, the responses to different competition intensities, and the temperature-dependent effects on interspecific competition are also discussed. In conclusion, competition decreased the larval duration of these two species by up to 2 d; this also draws attention to justifying the postmortem interval estimation of using larval developmental data when larval competition exists.

Effects of single- or mixed-species rearing on the body lengths of first- second- and third-instar larvae of C. Chrysomya megacephala Fabricius Oriental latrine fly and Chrysomya rufifacies Macquart hairy maggot blow flytwo predominant necrophagous species in Taiwan, are indigenous to the Australasian regions of the Old World tropics.

Laboratory colonies of larvae of C. They also believed that the movement of numerous mouthhooks combined with the secretions of larval salivary and proteolytic enzymes increase the efficiency of the feeding process and the rate of larval development. It has been bred by J. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Deze pagina is voor het laatst bewerkt op 2 dec om Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya rufifacies are two predominant necrophagous species in Taiwan. To understand the role that predation plays in larval competition, a simple experiment was designed to observe the predatory behavior of C. According to our observations, as a primary fly, predation and cannibalism are rare in C.

It has been reported in forensic cases in Thailand, and in other developing countries, and has been responsible for causing myiasis in humans Sukontason et al.
