Chrysomya putoria (Wiedemann) 

Musca putoria Wiedemann, 1830: 403  Chrysomya putoria: Dear, 1985: 112 

Diagnosis. Notum with whitish tomentum on thorax, especially along edge of mesonotum; male frons width less than the width of anterior ocellus; male outer vertical seta usually absent; female posterior margin of T 5 without a cleft.

Distribution. This species is not known from the West Indies, but is found throughout South America.

Discussion. There has been confusion about the species name. Zumpt (1956) considered it a synonym of C. chloropyga ( Wiedemann, 1818)  . Later he listed it as a valid species ( Zumpt 1965), but confusion continued. Rognes and Paterson (2005) studied both nominal species and concluded both are valid, with C. putoria  being found in Brazil, Colombia, Panama and Peru while C. chloropyga  is restricted to the Afrotropical Region. I have subsequently identified C. putoria  from Bolivia as well.
