Introduction. Muscina flies commonly breed in manure and defecate on food, which has been linked to the spread of some disease and illnesses. f3 with submedian av seta short (half as long as femur width) and placed before middle. 11. The strong, well developed radial (R) veins end in the costa about halfway along the wing. (Muscidae), wing vein four bends upward to join costa near vein three. (Tabanidae), wings often with one of more transverse bands. It adopts the same system they propose for naming the veins and for naming and numbering the cells, as the writer believes that this system is the only logical one that Wing venation in brachyceran dipterans. Hind basitarsus without v seta at base. 2002) and may be considered difficult. Adult Muscidae identification is based mostly on thorax and leg chaetotaxy and wing venation (Gregor et al. The wings are clear or tinged only rarely with markings. This raises some issues about the possibility of species identification. A) Chrysops sp. 2002) and may be considered difficult.

This hinders detailed investigation of their medico-legal usefulness in carrion succession experiments. Brachycera (Diptera) wing venation Chrysops (Tabanidae) (wings often with one or more transverse bands) Tabanus (Tabanidae) Musca (Muscidae) (wing vein 4 bends upward to join costa near vein 3) Stomoxys calcitrans (Muscidae) Glossina (Glossinidae) (closed cell between veins 4 and 5 … Oriental region Lispe glabra Wiedemann – Palpi entirely yellow. C) Musca sp. 2002)and may be considered difficult. Both flies collected on trail in dense woods. On the other hand, molecular libraries 1. The other veins (branches of the medius) are weaker and usually follow a diagonal course and are often parallel to each other. They have a characteristic reduced wing venation. ♂: mid legs and wing venation modified as in Figs 15 and 16; cercal plate as shown in Fig. ... - two basic types of wing venation - Family tabanidae specimen ID (horseflies): ... - family muscidae wing ID: - vein Rs is 2-branched - the frontal suture is present There was some discussion recently about the usefulness of wing venation for diagnostic puposes. 2002) and may be considered difficult. D) Stomoxys calcitrans (Muscidae). The identification of adult Muscidae is based mostly on chaetotaxy and wing venation, and often requires terminalia dissections (Savage & Vockeroth 2010).However, taxonomic work is more intricate when sexual dimorphism is involved and when there is a lack of diagnostic morphological features for differentiating the females of some species. This hinders detailed investi-gation of their medico-legal usefulness in carrion succes-sion experiments. E) Cochliomyia hominivorax (Calliphoridae). This hinders detailed investigation of their medico-legal usefulness in carrion succession experiments. House fly, Musca domestica Linnaeus (Insecta: Diptera: Muscidae) 2 manure piles or in other protected locations. Parafacials entirely bare. F) Wohlfartia vigil (Sarcophagidae). Adult Muscidae identification is based mostly on thorax and leg chaetotaxy and wing venation (Gregor et al. The occurrence of Muscina larvae on dead bodies has led to their regular use in forensic investigations, as they may be used to estimate the time of death. (Tabanidae). - venation is reduced - there are usually only three veins reaching the margin. Adult Muscidae identification is based mostly on thorax and leg chaetotaxy and wing venation (Gregor et al. the possibility of species identification. The Wing Venation of the Jassidce 105 This paper is founded upon the work of Comstock and Needham '98—'99. However, under suboptimal conditions the life cycle may require up to two months. Adult Muscidae identification is based mostly on thorax and leg chaetotaxy and wing venation (Gregor et al.
