Genus Chrysomya Robineau-Desvoidy 

Diagnosis. Greater ampulla setose ( Fig. 4View FIGURES 2 – 7. 2); T 1 + 2 wholly black, T 3 and T 4 with only posterior margins black ( Whitworth 2006: fig. 18).

Discussion. Four species of this genus have been introduced into the Neotropical Region from the Old World. Only three species occur in the West Indies: C. albiceps ( Wiedemann, 1819)  , C. megacephala ( Fabricius, 1794)  , and C. rufifacies ( Macquart, 1844)  . The fourth species, Chrysomya putoria ( Wiedemann, 1830)  , is not known from the West Indies.
