Description:

Identification guide to the adults of all British species in the families Calliphoridae, Polleniidae and Rhiniidae. It takes an original approach, using high quality diagnostic photographs throughout. This new and up-to-date guide will appeal to both enthusiast and professional entomologists. Biological recorders should find a good list within their local area. These flies are often under-recorded. Many species are seasonal, so there is year-round interest. Although some specimen preparation is often necessary, the author has avoided more complicated characters where possible. Blow flies are also of ecological, medical and veterinary importance. They pollinate plants, help decompose organic matter and can also spread disease. Egg laying on living animals causes myiasis. In addition, blow flies are an essential tool of forensic entomology. The mix of species, and their stage of development, can assist in reconstructing the circumstances around suspicious deaths.

The author has run the UK recording scheme for blow flies since 2015: the Calliphoridae, Rhiniidae and Polleniidae Recording Scheme.
