Wohlfahrtia magnifica, copyright Alvesgaspar.

Belongs within: Oestroidea.

The Paramacronychiinae are a group of sarcophagid flies combining a non-plumose arista with strong hairs on the meron. They are diverse in habits, including necrophagous species, predators of snails and parasites of other insects.

Characters (from Pape & Dahlem 2010): Head profile with convex occipital region; antennal arista not plumose; eyes not or only slightly enlarged; postocular setae alternating in size; notopleuron without subprimary bristles; metasternal area bare; hind coxa bare posteriorly; coxopleural streak present; male midfemur with apical posteroventral ctenidium of stout, flattened bristles; male abdominal sternites 2–4 partly hidden by overlapping margins of corresponding tergites, terminalia usually protruding, with tergite 6 distinctly fused to syntergosternite 7+8 at more or less right angle.
