Full title is cut off above. Full title: Biodiversity of Forensically Relevant Blowflies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) at the Anthropology Research Facility in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA

This article includes information about a 14-month calliphorid survey at the Anthropology Research Facility, often referred to as the "body farm".

A new state record for Protophormia terraenovae in Tennessee is included, as well as a Tennessee record for Chrysomya megacephala that predates other records.

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
