Abstract

The present work is an effort to cater the basic knowledge on the taxonomic aspects of blow-flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) of Sundarban Biosphere Reserve. The results of the present study may serve as a baseline data on availability of blow fly species particularly recorded from this sort of ecosystem of mangroves and associated swamp forest of West Bengal. Present study has recorded a total of 15 calliphorid species under five genera and two subfamilies from Sundarban Biosphere Reserve and associated ecosystem. Two calliphorid species namely Lucilia bazini Seguy, 1934; Lucilia illustris (Meigen, 1826) are reported for the first time from this habitat. Besides that, first reference, material examined and distributional notes were provided. Present study will also provide furtherance of taxonomic knowledge on this dipteran family of forensic importance.
