The discovery of several puparia of Calliphoridae containing other calliphorid
puparia inside is evidence of more than a single generational cohort.
Species identification of calliphorid
Calliphorid species can act as plant pollinators, and speed up the process of organic matter decomposition; additionally, several species, particularly C.
Six calliphorid species were recorded: Chloroprocta idioidea (Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830), Chrysomya albiceps (Wiedemann, 1830), Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius, 1805), Chrysomya putoria (Wiedemann, 1830), Cochliomyia macellaria (Fabricius, 1805) and Lucilia eximia (Wiedemann, 1819).
The high levels of calliphorid
flies around the traps created an intense situation in which the flies were fighting over the oviposition media.
For longer durations and larger fly populations, the Fly Terminator Pro traps containing attractant and dead flies become more appealing to filth flies, especially to calliphorid
filth flies, the longer it is left in traps.
This is because calliphorid
species often differ in habitat preference.
In addition, several mats of calliphorid
eggs were noted among the feathers of the cranium.

Eight other calliphorid species were collected in the same locations.
