The family Calliphoridae, blowflies, consists of moderately large flies that lay eggs into fresh or cooked meat or into are also able to lay eggs into living animals. As examples genera Lucilia, “green bottle flies,” and Calliphora are introduced. Green bottle flies are have a metallic green sheen, and Calliphora are larger (length 10–14 mm) and blue and black.

I also have recently coauthored two pictorial keys to blow flies which are available on line, “Blow flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) of eastern Canada with a key to Calliphoridae subfamilies and genera of eastern North America, and a key to eastern Canadian species of Calliphorinae, Luciliinae, and Chrysomyinae” (Marshall, et al. ) www. Blowfly definition is - any of a family (Calliphoridae) of dipteran flies (such as the bluebottle or screwworm) that deposit their eggs especially on meat or in wounds.

Blow flies have played a role in medicine: species such as the green bottle fly and the black blow fly were once commonly used to clean open wounds in humans because the maggots tend to feed only on decayed tissue. Some blow fly species, such as the screwworm fly, lay their eggs on living animals. The maggots then feed on the animal's healthy. Carrion Beetles Feeding. When an organism dies, such as the pictured American Toad, a series of decomposers appear and break it down. Some of the first insects to arrive at the scene are blowflies, and they lose no time in laying eggs which rapidly hatch into larvae, or maggots.
