Examples of "basicosta"
The wings' epaulets and
are orange pilose; they are hyaline and bare except brownish and microtrichose on their apical half.
Common names for "A. glabripennis" in Asia are the starry sky beetle,
white-spotted longicorn beetle, or smooth shoulder-longicorn, and it is called the Asian long-horned beetle (ALB) in North America.
Its wings are hyaline and bare; tegula and
are black. The coxae and trochanters are black; femora are black except the apices which are narrowly orange; protibiae are black, mesotibia brownish orange, metatibia flattened, broad and black. The tarsi are orange.
All flies can be identified from other species by certain characteristics. They can differ in thoracic coloring,
coloring, and spiracle coloring. Size and shape are aids in identification. "Pollenia rudis" eggs are oblong-shaped. They are very small and white. The "P. Rudis" larvae are white with posterior spiracles. The adult "Pollenia rudis" looks like most of the other "Pollenia" species such as "pallida", and "dasylpoda". They are dark gray with checkered black and silvery-black abdomens. A newly emerged fly has many golden hairs on its thorax which may be lost throughout the life of the fly. The stripes on the thorax are not as prominent as on the house fly and the tips of the wings overlap when at rest. The cluster fly is slightly larger than a house fly at 9.525-12.7mm (3/8-1/2 inch) long. The similarities between "pallida" and "rudis" are seen in the female specimens. "P. pallida" has a broad, flattened facial keel. "P.dasyloda" has a black head with yellow tint on the frons. The
can be found in many colors ranging from yellow to light brown. Some specimens have black
. The posterior spiracle ranges from yellow in color to light brown. The number of bristles and setae found on this species are characteristic of this species only. There are 2-3 rows of setae located on the thoracic section and 6-8 strong frontal bristles. Bristles are thick setae. They also have aristate antennae.
The adult "Protophormia terraenovae", one of the larger species of calliphorids, measures between 7 and 12 mm in length. It is characterized by a black to brown anterior thoracic spiracle, a black
, brown wing veins, and dark calypters. Upper calypters sprout black setae. While the thorax and abdomen of "P. terraenovae" can range in color from dark purple to dark green, the head and legs of this fly are black. Postocular setae are short but prominent; the palpi are yellow or dusky brown.
The New World screwworm fly shares many characteristics of the common house fly. When keying out a dipteran specimen, it is important to first note whether bristles on the meron are present or absent. All species in the family Calliphoridae have bristles on their merones, plumose arista, and well-developed calypters. Both "C. macellaria" and "C. hominivorax" are metallic green to bluish green in major coloration, with setae on the dorsal surface of the stem vein, orange gena, pale white anterior spiracles, filiform palps, and three black longitudinal stripes (vittae) on the notum of the thorax. The species "C. macellaria" has pale setulae on the fronto-orbital plate outside the row of frontal bristles, while "C. hominivorax" has dark setulae on the fronto-orbital plate outside the row of frontal bristles. The female "C. macellaria" has a yellowish
while the female "C. hominivorax" has a brown
. "C. macellaria" is 6–9 mm in length. "C. hominivorax" is 8–10 mm in length.
The typical and usual segments of the insect leg are divided into the coxa, one trochanter, the femur, the tibia, the tarsus, and the pretarsus. The coxa in its more symmetrical form, has the shape of a short cylinder or truncate cone, though commonly it is ovate and may be almost spherical. The proximal end of the coxa is girdled by a submarginal basicostal suture that forms internally a ridge, or
, and sets off a marginal flange, the coxomarginale, or basicoxite. The
strengthens the base of the coxa and is commonly enlarged on the outer wall to give insertion to muscles; on the mesal half of the coxa, however, it is usually weak and often confluent with the coxal margin. The trochanteral muscles that take their origin in the coxa are always attached distal to the
. The coxa is attached to the body by an articular membrane, the coxal corium, which surrounds its base. These two articulations are perhaps the primary dorsal and ventral articular points of the subcoxo-coxal hinge. In addition, the insect coxa has often an anterior articulation with the anterior, ventral end of the trochantin, but the trochantinal articulation does not coexist with a sternal articulation. The pleural articular surface of the coxa is borne on a mesal inflection of the coxal wall. If the coxa is movable on the pleural articulation alone, the coxal articular surface is usually inflected to a sufficient depth to give a leverage to the abductor muscles inserted on the outer rim of the coxal base. Distally the coxa bears an anterior and a posterior articulation with the trochanter. The outer wall of the coxa is often marked by a suture extending from the base to the anterior trochanteral articulation. In some insects the coxal suture falls in line with the pleural suture, and in such cases the coxa appears to be divided into two parts corresponding to the episternum and epimeron of the pleuron. The coxal suture is absent in many insects.
Like all green bottle flies in its family, the "Lucilia coeruleiviridis" adult is a metallic blue-green bodied fly. The facial region is white with large red compound eyes. There are also bristles present as well as plumose aristae. The thorax also contains bristles, all of which are evenly paired. Just behind the head, the anterior spiracle is black in color, as is the thoracic posterior spiracle. The meron, just below the wing, is bristled. The veination of the wing is “incomplete” in that it does not reach the wing edge. The
of the wing, or the “shoulder” area, is yellow in coloration, and the calypters—the scale-like structures just below the wing base— are white and of unequal size. The legs of the adult are usually brown to black in color. Like most flies, it also has tarsal pulvilli, or soft pads, at the end of each foot used to “stick” to surfaces, that are slightly yellow in color. As with all insects, coloration is very important in identification of a species, as well as the presence of bristles. Sometimes, the presence of a pair of bristles on the thoracic plate is the only way to identify one species from another.
