Phaenicia (Lucilia) caesar (Linnaeus)

This bluish-green blow fly is restricted to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. Typically, the larvae develop in decaying meat, but it has been occasionally reported from animals and humans in Europe. Supperer and Hinaidy reported an infestation of a cat in Austria (1986).
