A preliminary geometric morphometric assessment of two forensically important blow fly larvae in Malaysia, Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius) and Chrysomya rufifacies (Macquart) (Diptera: Calliphoridae). Serangga 24(1): 70-79.

Geometric morphometric analysis has been recently utilized as practical solution to visualize variations in biological shapes including those of forensically important species. This article provides baseline data of cephalopharyngeal skeleton shape profiles and determine shape variations between C. megacephala and C. rufifacies from Malaysia based on the ordination of 10 morphometric landmarks as shown below.
