Explanation Vernacular name used for the family Sarcophagidae in general or the genus Sarcophaga in particular.
Jizz: Species of the subfamily Sarcophaginae are generally big (10-25 mm) powerful flies; thorax with three strong black stripes and a checker-board patterned abdomen. Often found near carrion. They enjoy sunbathing.
