  1. Effects of temperature on Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis (Diptera : Sarcophagidae) development.

    Article - En anglais

    Growth curves were studied for the larva and pupa of Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis (Fallen) under cyclic temperatures with means of 15.6,21.1,26.7, and 35°C, and a constant temperature of 25°C. Development from lst instar to adult under all regimes ranged from 252 to 802 h. A constant temperature of 25°C produced a range of pupation times from 93 to 153 h, with adult emergence ranging from 252 to 502 h. A maximal preferential temperature of 30°C was determined for maggots by using a gradient system.

    This study shows that S.

    Haemorrhoidalis can be used as an indicator species when establishing a postmortem interval as long as the investigator accounts for the developmental variation prevalent within this species.
