A check list of necrophagous flies Diptera: Data were obtained from field work and recent bibliography references. Se registran 27 especies incluidas en cuatro forende.

Diptera is one of the mega diverse order of insects and encompasses approximately described species Courtney et al. In the neotropical region, near to 24 species had been reported Amorim et al. This order of insects is one of the most diverse ones concerning to morphology and habits.

This group includes pollinators, predators, parasitoids, decomposers of plant and animal organic matter playing an important ecological role in the recycling of elements in the ecosystems Hanski,and some others that could transmit diseases behaving as mechanical vectors Skevington and Dang, ; Brown et al.

Calyptratae flies Diptera, Brachycera are comprised of approximately 18 species worldwide and includes blowflies Calliphoridaefleshflies Sarcophagidae and house flies Muscidae among others. These families are of significant importance from the forensic point of view due to their decomposer and synanthropic habits.

Unfortunately, no official data on species richness for calyptratae species are available for Colombia.

In the last 2 decades, carrion feeding arthropods mainly calyptratae flies had been used in forensic entomology to establish circumstances of death in legal cases Smith, ; Cats and Haskell, ; Greenberg, Studies of forensic entomology emphasize the importance of the families Calliphoridae, Muscidae, Sarcophagidae and Fanniidae among others due to their ecological traits, including its predominance in colonizing corpses Catt and Goff, In Colombia, studies on decomposer or necrophagous flies had been focused on forensic entomology development, but unfortunately no local comprehensive inventories of this fauna had been done.


Flies were collected from October to December in 4 sites: At each site, 2 McPhail modified traps were baited with rotten fish heads and chicken viscera further details in Amat, The traps were operated 1 day from Specimens collected were identified using the taxonomic keys of ChillcottAmat et al. Some Muscidae and Entomloogia specimens were identified by Dra.

A total number enn 29 species were summarized and listed, morphotypes identified at genus level are included Table 1Calliphoridae and Sarcophagidae being the richest families. Calliphoridae mainly represented by: The family Muscidae was represented by: The family Sarcophagidae Fleshflies was mainly represented by the genera Oxysarcodexia and Peckia, both taxa widely distributed in Colombia, were previously reported by Pape et al.

Neotropical Peckia species, found here, were recently reviewed and keyed by Buenaventura and Pape in press. Mexoco plinthopyga is previously reported from Antioquia Pape et al. And finally, Fannidae, with specimens that could not be identified at the species level, due to the fact that no males were collected in order to review diagnostic characters. Fannia and Euryomma species reported here have been reviewed and keyed by Grisales The entomofauna in the tropics is characterized to be rich forenze species and still underestimated Gaston, Necrophagous flies communities found in Neotropical environments probably are not the exception in terms of species richness if compared with other studies in the holartic region whose assemblages comprise only a few number of species, usually dominated by 1 to 3 species Hanski, The composition of species presented in this study may serve as baseline for future ecological research in a multidimensional scale, and will provide support to consolidate the framework in the use of techniques of forensic entomology development.


We thank the Muscidae and Sarcophagidae specialist named in the text for taxonomic identifications.
