Identification Manual for the Larval Chironomidae (Diptera) of North and South Carolina
Identification guide for all known Chironomidae larvae from North and South Carolina, by John Epler. "While this key is intended for use with North Carolina/South Carolina specimens, it should work well for most of the eastern United States." Errata and additions are available on John Epler's personal web site.

The Anthomyiidae of California, Exclusive of the subfamily Scatophaginae (Diptera).
A useful resource for taxa as described in the title. Written H. C. Huckett by in 1971. Keys, distribution data, and figures...but unfortunately no detailed descriptions.

Blow Flies of Eastern Canada
"Blow flies (Diptera; Calliphoridae) of eastern Canada with a key to Calliphoridae subfamilies and genera of eastern North America, and a key to the eastern Canadian species of Calliphorinae, Luciliinae and Chrysomyiinae"

Keys to the Genera and Species of Blow Flies (Diptera:Calliphoridae) of America North of Mexico - Terry Whitworth
This is a link to a pdf file of Dr. Terry Whitworth's paper on Calliphoridae that appeared in the Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington in June of 2006. The key has many beautifully detailed illustrations and there is also a simple key that will allow one to discriminate calliphorids from other similar Diptera. I emailed him in January 2008 and he generously agreed to share this paper from his web site link (www.birdblowfly.com).
