15. Post-mortem interval estimation based on insect evidence: current challenges.

During death investigations insects are used mostly to estimate the post-mortem interval (PMI). These estimates are only as good as they are close to the true PMI. Therefore, the major challenge for forensic entomology is to reduce the estimation inaccuracy. Here, I review literature in this field...

18. Flies do not jump to conclusions: estimation of the minimum post-mortem interval for a partly skeletonized body based on larvae of Phormia regina (Diptera: Calliphoridae).

Skeletonization is often perceived as an indicator of long post-mortem intervals. The finding of feeding larvae of first colonizers, on the other hand, indicates days. We present a case in which both findings were present. Larvae of Phormia regina, aged 9 days, and skeletonization of the head and...
