Title: The world of flesh flies (Diptera: Sarcophagidae)
Creator: Pape, Thomas; et al.
Abstract: This Webpage is dedicated to flesh flies (Sarcophagidae [Brachycera, Diptera]). It provides an introduction to the family, general sections on morphology, biology and collecting techniques. Flesh flies belong to the calyptrate flies (Calyptratae). They are a medium-sized family with some 2,600 described species world-wide. Although the name would seem to indicate a habit of breeding in vertebrate carcases, this is by no means typical for the family, which includes specialists ranging from inhabitants of pitcher plants to bat coprophages, crab saprophages, wasp nest inquilines, and insect parasitoids.
