Welcome to my taxonomic database to the flesh flies of our planet.

My aim is to provide information on the taxonomy, distribution and natural history for all flesh flies with a valid scientific name, and in particular to provide pictorial information in a consistent format that will facilitate species-level identification. For identification of genera it is recommended to consult relevant regional Diptera manuals. This database is not a nomenclator and you will not find any synonymies. The relevant nomenclature is authoritatively covered by Systema Dipterorum ( Also, this is not a specimen database, and distribution is entered at a country level with the larger countries broken down to state or province.

I warmly encourage everybody to send corrections or updates to me ( I am especially interested in high-quality photographs of both museum specimens and live ones.
