The flesh flies (family Sarcophagidae*) are a fairly distinctive group of true flies associated with dead animals. Many, but not all, place their young on carcasses to eat the decaying flesh–flies in this group are useful for forensics. Other Sarcophagid maggots are parasitic on other invertebrates, and at least one specializes on the nests of turtles. All are placed directly at their food source by a female who has carried her eggs inside her until they hatch. Adults might snack on the juices of the dead, but also like sweet treats like flower nectar and aphid honeydew.
