Results: This review deals with morphology, bionomics and medical involvement. Important morphological characteristics of egg, larva, puparia and adult were highlighted with illustration and/or micrographs. Search pertaining to molecular analysis used for fly identification and developmental rate of larvae were included. Medical involvement of larvae was not only myiasis-producing agent in humans and animals, but associated with human death investigations. Conclusions: This information will enable us to accurate identify this species and to emphasis the increase medically important scene in Thailand © 2014 Sukontason et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
