Madeira: Bica da Cana (1 female).

Remarks.

This common carrion-breeder is distributed throughout the Holarctic Region and is also present in the Oriental and Australasian regions ( Erzinçlioglu 1985). It is more rural in its distribution than Calliphora vicina  ( Smith 1986), frequenting natural and cultivated forests and showing a preference for more shaded habitats ( Szpila et al. 2014). Calliphora vomitoria  was found only in Madeira, in a pine plantation with low human disturbance.
