Hi to all!

Can Calliphoridae be confirmed for these larvae, or maybe even a genus determined? Or Sarcophagidae? Size of the biggest (roughly estimated): 2cm

Found 9.12.2018 in Chile, above the city of Valparaíso, about 440m a.s.l. (Coordinates 33.0734644S, 71.6278122W)

I would say Chrysomya species (Calliphoridae).

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
