Hi friends,
Hope the below info is correct. if wrong, pls identify.

Flesh fly:

Flies in the family Sarcophagidae (from the Greek σάρκο sarco- = flesh, phage = eating; the same roots as the word "sarcophagus") are commonly known as flesh flies. They differ from most flies in that they are ovoviviparous, opportunistically depositing hatched or hatching maggots instead of eggs on carrion, dung, decaying material, or open wounds of mammals, hence their common name. Some flesh fly larvae are internal parasites of other insects such as Orthoptera, and some, in particular the Miltogramminae, are kleptoparasites of solitary Hymenoptera.

Scientific classification:

Kingdom : Animalia
Phylum : Arthropoda
Class : Insecta
Order : Diptera
Section : Schizophora
Superfamily: Oestroidea
Family : Sarcophagidae
