dc.description.abstractRole of blow flies as the entomological evidence used in forensic investigations has risen dramatically worldwide. As the diverse habitats of Thailand suitably endowed with biodiversity of insects, blow flies of forensic importance need investigation in their bionomics, which are further applied in forensic investigations. Chrysomya pinguis (Walker, 1858) (Diptera: Calliphoridae) make up one of the most common blow fly species found associated with the human corpses and/or death scenes in several countries of the Asia continent. Given the major species as forensically important, this review is performed by the need for gathering information of C. pinguis from literature search in the future application in the regions where this species exists. This review deals with morphology, current knowledge on bionomics and forensic entomology involvement. Important morphological characteristics of egg, larva, puparium 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. Furthermore, we outline potential issues and challenges of C. pinguis research that necessitate forensic applications in the future.en_US
