Abstract

A list of 33 species of Sarcophagidae collected in Croatia in 2003, 2014 and 2019 is presented. Six species were first mentioned for the territory of Croatia: Amobia oculata (Zetterstedt, 1844); Taxigramma heteroneura (Meigen, 1830); Phrosinella nasuta (Meigen, 1824); Heteronychia (s. str.) rohdendorfi (Povolný et Slamečková, 1959); Sarcophaga disputata Lehrer, 1967; Sarcophaga vulgaris Rohdendorf, 1937. The total number of known species is 156, which is not less than 80‒90% of the regional fauna of the full regional faunistic list according to the comparative analysis of literature data from Croatia and neighboring territories. 23 refs.
