To my knowledge, no Delta/Intkey keys were yet released for Calliphoridae and Sarcophagidae. Your best option is probably to contact specialists who may be aware of comprehensive publications about your local fauna.

For the Sarcophagidae I suggest you contact Dr Thomas Pape in Denmark (). He is author of the Catalogue of the Sarcophagidae of the World (1996) and has started (together with Ulf Carlberg in Sweden) a pictorial guide to the Sarcophagidae of the world ( At present it is far from complete but you may try to use this to your advantage also.

For Calliphoridae you may contact Prof. Knut Rognes (). I do not think he is well-specialised in your local fauna but he may be able to point you in the right direction for literature or someone who can provide it.
