Belongs within: Calliphoridae.

Lucilia, greenbottles, is a cosmopolitan genus of blow flies with a metallic green, greenish blue or dark purplish body and without hairs on the lower calypter (Vargas & Wood 2010). Larvae feed on a variety of decomposing substrates and some species may become parasites on live animals.
