Responses to various types of light have been studied in some muscid and calliphorid
flies (Zablocka 1972; Meyer 1978; Pickens 1989; Smallegange 2004), but have not been well studied in diurnal Diptera, including in the economically important family Tephritidae.
After 13 days, large numbers of calliphorid
puparia (in total n=158) were collected from the soil under the carcass.
The association of calliphorid
species with human settlements has been studied for some regions of South America, in Brazil (Linhares 1981a, Carvalho et al.
and sarcophagid fly fauna of district Faisalabad.
Population fluctuations of calliphorid
species (Diptera, Calliphoridae) in the Biological Reserve of Tingua, state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Larval growth of some calliphorid
and sarcophagid Diptera.
In addition, several mats of calliphorid
eggs were noted among the feathers of the cranium.

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.
Calliphora can be distinguished from other Neotropical calliphorid
genera by the following characters: bare stem vein, lower calypter setose above, bare suprasquamal ridge, thorax dull grey with whitish microtomentum, and abdomen subshining metallic blue with more or less whitish microtomentum (Whitworth, 2012).
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the pupation site preference of Calliphorid
and Sarcophagid flies towards the various pupation materials in the months of October and December.
The discovery of several puparia of Calliphoridae containing other calliphorid
puparia inside is evidence of more than a single generational cohort.
