Family Calliphoridae

This page contains pictures and information about Brown Scutellum Bluebottle Blowflies II that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

Body length 8mm
This Brown Scutellum Bluebottle Blowfly look very similar to the Calliphora (Calliphora) vicina. However, the face, scutellum and legs are in different colours. We believed they are in different species. They both are dusted metal blue in colour with silvery or golden tessellation and on abdomen. Legs are dark brown to black with  yellow in colours, There is brown on wings near the wing base.
