Pachycrepoideus vindemmiae (Rondani, 1875) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) is to be a solitary parasitoid that controls a great number of Diptera in the families Anthomyiidae, Calliphoridae
, Muscidae, Sarcophagidae, Tachinidae and Tephritidae.
Moreover, during the first 6 days of the experiment, flies visiting the carcass were collected using an insect net the flies Caliphoridae (Lucilia sericata), present were captured by insect net and placed in alcohol (75%) Of the flies captured, the number of male and female Calliphoridae
were recordeddaily (for 6 days).

When comparing interaction strengths of flower visitors, family Apidae and Halictidae in the order Hymenoptera, family Syrphidae and Calliphoridae
in order Diptera, and family Nymphalidae and Lycaenidae in the order Lepidoptera exhibited higher values in interaction strength scale.
The insects are the first organisms to detect and colonize dead animals, being present in every phase of the decomposition process (Carvalho, Thyssen, Linhares, & Palhares, 2000); among them, the most frequently used in forensic studies are the dipterous belonging to the families Calliphoridae
, Muscidae and Sarcophagidae (Rosa & Oliveira-Costa, 2013) and the Coleoptera families Dermestidae, Silphidae and Cleridae (Smith, 1986).
In these cases, the diversity of fly families involved is lower, represented by four families (GOSA et al., 2009), and, in the new world, parasitism has been reported in adult anurans by species of Calliphoridae
and Sarcophagidae (BOLEK & JANOY, 2004; GOSA et al., 2009; MEDINA et al., 2009).
