In cases of myiasis involving the invasion of living tissue by dipterous larvae, the physician or entomologist often wishes to rear out the adult fly in order to obtain an accurate identification of the parasite. If the maggot has reached the third instar when received, it will often pupate in a jar of soil, but earlier stages are unable to complete their development when removed from the host.
