G. Smith 1986; Byrd and Castner 2001; Greenberg and Kunich 2002). Especially difficult is the identification of the larval stages, where breeding to the adult stage or DNA-based methods are recommended. Fortunately, the available knowledge of the morphology of third instars of Calliphoridae is sufficiently good to allow the preparation of a complete identification key for at least all European species of forensic importance. Eleven species are included in the key. Most of them are widespread through Europe (Rognes 2004) and have been frequently reported from both real cases and carrion experiments, and the necessity of their inclusion into the key cannot be questioned.
