|Abstract:||© 2015, Malaysian Society for Parasitology. All rights reserved. This study contributed new records of three flesh fly species (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) to the fauna of Thailand - Miltogramma tibita Chao & Zhang (subfamily Miltogrammatinae), Myorhina situliformis (Zhong, Wu & Fan, 1982), and Iranihindia martellata (Senior-White, 1924) (subfamily Sarcophaginae). Collections of these species were performed using a sweep net and one-day old beef offal as bait. Miltogramma tibita differs from other known Miltogramma by having a fine long seta on the dorsal surface of tarsomeres 2-4. With this new record, the number of species belonging to the genus Miltogramma known from Thailand has increased to three which includes Miltogramma angustifrons (Townsend, 1933) and Miltogramma iberica Villeneuve, 1912. The new record of My. situliformis makes a total of three species for Myorhina and these include Myorhina otiophalla (Fan & Chen, 1981) and Myorhina caudagalli (Böttcher, 1912). Regarding Iranihindia, the recording of I. martellata makes a total of two species, the other being Iranihindia martellatoides (Baranov, 1931). This study provides a revised key of each genus where these newly recorded species were recorded, with their re-descriptions, illustrations, photographs, and scanning electron micrographs focusing on the male genitalia. The findings of these newly recorded species means that a total of 86 species of flesh flies have been recorded from Thailand.|
