- Lucilia cuprina，is an important pest of sheep in Australia and other parts of the world. It is a member of the order Diptera, has a pair of short but very strong membranous wings and a pair of hindwings reduced and modified to clublike balancers known as halteres. It is of significant concern as a result of the welfare issues and production losses that arise when gravid female blow flies deposit eggs on sheep, giving rise to fly strike. It is an important ecto-parasite that causes fly strike, which has significant health and welfare, as well as economic, impacts on the sheep industry in Australia .
