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).

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
