(Figure 37 a,b,c)

Musca taenionota Wiedemann, 1819

Biology. Sarcophaga taenionota  is commonly found on, and known to breed in human and cow faeces, along with dead animals ( Ferrar 1979; Park 1977; Pérez-Moreno et al. 2006; Woolcock 1975). It has also been collected at decayed-carrion baits by KAM.

Taxonomy. The eggs and larval instars were described by Ferrar (1979; referred to as Parasarcophaga knabi  ). DNAAbout DNA barcode sequences of S. taenionota  have been deposited in both GenBank and BOLD.
