Abstract

Here we present the first records and new data on the biology of flesh flies (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) emerging from terrestrial snails belonging to the families Cochlicellidae, Helicidae and Hygromiidae collected from eight sites on the Moroccan Atlantic coast over the period May 2015 to May 2016.We successfully identified 271 adults of these flies. Five of them represent new records for the Moroccan fauna.With these new records, the number of known species belonging to the family Sarcophagidae in Morocco has been increased from 51 to 56.
