Lucilia bufonivora, Not Lucilia silvarum (Diptera: Calliphoridae), Causes Myiasis in Anurans in North America With Notes About
By Whitworth, T. L., Bolek, M. G., & Arias-Robledo, G
Journal of Medical Entomology, 2020
Full Title: Lucilia bufonivora, Not Lucilia silvarum (Diptera: Calliphoridae), Causes Myiasis in Anurans in North America With Notes About Lucilia elongata and Lucilia thatuna

Molecular work reveals that the holarctic species Lucilia bufonivora, previously thought to be absent in North America, is to blame for cases of Anuran myiasis previously attributed to Lucilia silvarum or Lucilia elongata. Given this revelation, L. silvarum is now thought to be strictly saprophytic. Further research is needed to determine whether L. elongata is capable of Anuran myas

North American Species of Cuterebra, the Rabbit and Rodent Bot Flies (Diptera: Cuterebridae)
By Curtis W. Sabrosky
Entomological Society of America, College Park Maryland, 1986
This is the most current key to the 40 species of Cuterebra bot flies in North America. The key is meant for having the specimen in hand, and not all species are pictured, so takes some effort to use the key. But nice range maps and packed with information about each species of bot. Excellent bibliography for more detailed information, if desired. This is the best book on bots out there, but those not familar with terminology may struggle with it.
