Chrysomya albiceps (Wiedemann) 

Musca albiceps Wiedemann, 1819: 38  Chrysomya albiceps: Dear, 1985: 113 

Diagnosis. This species is similar to C. putoria  and C. rufifacies  , but lacks a proepisternal seta. Distribution. This species was found near Calibishe, Dominica ( TW); Dear (1985) listed it from Puerto Rico.

Discussion. Wells and Sperling (1999) debated if Chrysomya albiceps  and C. rufifacies  are each a valid species since they appear very similar. They concluded they are recently evolved separate species.
