Flesh Fly - Family Sarcophagidae

There are many species in this family look similar. Larvae develop in carrion or dung. The adult flies are usually black in colour with three grey longitudinal stripes on thorax.. Their head is with bright red eyes.. They are very close to the Blowfly family but none of them are in metallic colour.

The Flesh Fly females are viviparous, producing live maggots directly onto their food source. They are either breed in rotting vegetation, carrion, decomposing organic matter or parasites of other insects.

Mating for survival of the species is one of the most basic activities of the insects. Mating have many different ways depending on different species. I hope the view through my camera will bring up something interesting for you!

Thank you for your viewing and comments!

Best regard
