Thread subject: :: Meaning of scientific names - Calliphoridae and Muscidae

Posted by Johane on 07-08-2023 22:19

Hi, I wonder about the meaning of some species epithets in Calliphoridae and Muscidae

1. Calliphora genarum (Zetterstedt, 1838). Is it simply genitive plural of gena=cheek?
2. Bellardia bayeri (Jacentkovsk√Ĺ, 1937). Named after a person, I assume?
3. Neomyia cornicina (Fabricius, 1781)

Thanks in advance for your help!
