This article focuses on forensic entomology and important flies in forensic entomology and their characteristics. There are flies like blow flies, flesh flies and much more. These flies can be discovered on corpses which have their own characters. For example, some flies will come at an early stage of decomposition of the body and some will at the end stage.
