the influence of clothing and wrapping on carcass decomposition and arthropod succession during the warmer seasons in central south africa*.the influence of clothing and wrapping on carcass decomposition and arthropod succession was investigated to provide data to enable estimated postmortem interval in homicide investigations. six pig carcasses, sus scrofa, were divided into three sample groups, each with a clothed carcass wrapped and a carcass wrapped with no clothes. two more carcasses, one with no clothes or wrapping, the other with clothes and no wrapping were used as controls. the clothed or wrapped carcasses had larger visibl ...200919686395
extracts of four plant species used traditionally to treat myiasis influence pupation rate, pupal mass and adult blowfly emergence of lucilia cuprina and chrysomya marginalis (diptera: calliphoridae).aloe zebrina, clausena anisata, erythrina lysistemon and spirostachys africana are used traditionally in southern africa to combat and/or treat myiasis, the infestation of the skin of mammals by larvae of a variety of fly species belonging to the arthropod order diptera.the objective of the study was to establish the in vitro effect of extracts of these plant species on blowfly larvae to ascertain the potential use of these extracts and validate the traditional use.201222902486
survey of the genetic diversity of forensically important chrysomya (diptera: calliphoridae) from egypt.minimum postmortem interval estimations of a corpse using blow fly larvae in medicolegal investigations require correct identification and the application of appropriate developmental data of the identified fly species. species identification of forensically relevant blow flies could be very difficult and time consuming when specimens are damaged or in the event of morphologically indistinguishable immature stages, which are most common at crime scenes. in response to this, an alternative, accur ...201526334805
an acetone extract of <i>clausena</i> <i>anisata</i> may be a potential control agent for flies encountered in cutaneous myiasis.clausena anisata is a medicinal plant used traditionally to treat myiasis and as an insect repellent by various communities. we have previously demonstrated the effects of c. anisata extracts on blowfly feeding and development in our laboratory. the impact of c. anisata leaf extracts on populations of different fly species on farms in mpumalanga, south africa was investigated in this study under field conditions. flies were exposed to liver baits treated with acetone leaf extracts of c. anisata ...201627796113
evaluation of plant species used traditionally to treat myiasis for activity on the survival and development of lucilia cuprina and chrysomya marginalis (diptera: calliphoridae).myiasis is a common parasitic problem of livestock responsible for severe economic losses in developing and developed countries. there are a number of challenges with the current control strategy, which depends largely on the use of pharmaceutical chemicals. these include inaccessibility, the increasing concern about pesticide accumulation in the environment and potential development of insecticide resistance in the devastating myiasis-causing flies. consequently the search for alternatives is i ...201222824063

insect colonization and succession on rabbit carcasses in southwestern mountains of the kingdom of saudi arabia.this study describes for the first time the necrophagous insects attracted to carcasses of the european rabbit in the mountains of al-baha province of southwestern kingdom of saudi arabia (ksa). twenty-four rabbit carcasses were exposed in 2010 during spring (march, april, and may), summer (june, july, and august), and autumn (september, october, and november). the calliphorid fly species, calliphora vicina robineau-desvoidy, chrysomya marginalis (wiedemann), chrysomya chloropyga (wiedemann), ch ...201426309303
morphology and identification of first instars of african blow flies (diptera: calliphoridae) commonly of forensic importance.scanning electron microscopy images of the first instars of calliphora croceipalpis jaennicke, 1876; chrysomya chloropyga (wiedemann, 1818); chrysomya marginalis (wiedemann, 1830); and chrysomya putoria (wiedemann, 1830) (diptera: calliphoridae) are presented for the first time, and the following morphological structures are documented: pseudocephalon, antenna, maxillary palpus, facial mask, labial lobe, thoracic and abdominal spinulation, spiracular field, posterior spiracles, and anal pads. li ...201121845931
