Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius, ) occurs on every continent and is closely associated with carrion and decaying material in human. The Oriental Latrine Fly, Chrysomya megacephala Fabricius, , is notorious in this regard. Adults of the synanthropic form of this species (see below) are. Abstract. Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya rufifacies are two predominant necrophagous species in Taiwan. Larvae of the latter can prey on other.

Linear regression of the adult dry weights of C.

Geraadpleegd op crhysomya juli Larval competition for patchy resources in Chrysomya megacephala Dipt, Calliphoirdae: The survivorships of C.

Five larvae of the same instar stage from each species were placed into a ml plastic cup without food.

Linear regression was used to determine the effects of different competition intensities on larval development. Effects of different breeding densities on the duration of larval development Aadult dry weight Band larval survivorship C under single-species rearing of C.

Chrysomya megacephala – Wikipedia

Chrysomya megacephala Fabricius Because predation only occurred with second- and third-instar larvae of C. The ecological role of C. Linear regression of the durations of larval development of C. The adult dry weights of C.


Larval predatory by Chrysomya albiceps on Cochliomyia macellaria, Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya putoria. Emergent adults were undersized the adult dry weight was only Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Nonetheless, it cnrysomya still quite difficult to tell into which model these two species should be classified.

The cup was inside a container 14 cm in diameter and The developmental stages of C. The higher fitness of C.

Linear regressions of the adult dry weights of C. Observations also showed that a single C. The fly larvae of Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya rufifacies were also present at the scene on the body and were tested for malathion.

They also believed that the movement of numerous mouthhooks combined with the secretions of larval salivary and proteolytic enzymes increase the efficiency of the feeding process and the rate of larval development. The immature stages of the Old-World screw-worm fly, Chrysomya bezziana Villeneuve, with comparative notes on other Australasian species of Chrysomya Diptera: According to the results, under higher-density conditions, C.


Obviously, the different strategies above may more or less reflect individual species characteristics and also strongly indicate the important role that density plays in intraspecific competition.

Factsheet – Chrysomya megacephala

Larvae of the latter can prey on other maggots, including that of their own species as facultative megaephala. These Old World blowflies of Chrysomya were also introduced to the Americas in the mids and quickly became widespread and abundant in North and South America Baumgartner and Greenberg Wells and Kurahashi proposed an interesting hypothesis; they believed that C.

Do not underestimate the effects of temperature, different larval stages, and competition intensity on larval development.
