A genus of flies of the class Hexopoda, the order Diptera, and family Muscidae. Some of them deposit their eggs in mucous orifices or on wounded surfaces, while others wound the skin and insert their eggs beneath the skin, giving rise to swelling with central apertures from which a sanious discharge escapes, or to severe and sometimes extensive gangrene. They also convey diseases by infectious bacteria, such as the typhoid bacillus on their soiled legs or in their intestine. See fly.
