|Title:||LARVAL DISPERSION IN CHRYSOMYA-MEGACEPHALA, CHRYSOMYA-PUTORIA AND COCHLIOMYIA-MACELLARIA (DIPT, CALLIPHORIDAE)|
|Abstract:||Horizontal and vertical frequency distribution of larvae in three species of Calliphoridae were studied. Correlation between horizontal and vertical dispersion and larval size was also assessed. The experiment was monitored depositing vials with larvae at one end of a cardboard box covered with wood shavings. Chrysomya megacephala and C., putoria reached 2.9 m from the starting portion of the box. Co. macellaria reached only 2.0 m from the starting portion of the box. The majority of pupae of the three species were found at 4 and 5 cm depth from the surface of the box. Correlation coefficients between pupal size and horizontal and vertical migration were usually very low, and apparently no clear pattern emerges from this data set. This study revealed variation in the dispersion patterns although the two Chrysomya species are more similar in their postfeeding larval behaviour compared to Co. macellaria.|
