Abstract Share this page

Chrysomya. megacephala (Fabricius, 1794), one of the Calliphorid flies with forensic and medical importance has been studied for the effect of temperature on its life cycle duration and morphological parameters of different developmental stages. In room temperature during rainy season, the duration of life cycle was completed in 265 ± 2 hrs; 11.04 ± 0.08 days. But in low constant temperature 10 °C life cycle was completed in 609 ± 4 hrs; 25.38 ± 0.16 days, which means the completion of life cycle was delayed by 14.37 ± 0.13days. In the rainy season when the temperature and the humidity are high the duration of life cycle is short andsize of maggots, pupae and adult are large, but in low temperature the duration wasprolonged and the size was small in each stage.
