Notes on necrophagous flies Diptera: Calyptratae associated to fish carrion in Colombian Amazon. In recent years, there has been an increasing number of studies on carrion fly communities due to their medical importance and as a consequence of the large number of studies on forensic entomology. Surprisingly few studies have adressed with the asynantropic flies of the Amazon, and none were done in Colombia. A faunistic study of asynantropic flies of the families Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae, Muscidae and Fannidae in three different landscapes of the Colombian Amazon is presented, trapping effectiveness is assessed, and the first record of Mesembrinella batesi Aldrich, and Fannia femoralis Stein, from Colombia is reported. The decomposing activity of bacteria, fungi and carrion animal feedings is the main process by which nutrients are released and recycled from dead animals. Arthropods and mainly carrion feeding insects represent the most conspicuous element in this process Nuorteva, ; Hanski, The role of necrophagous flies is ecologically important given their predominance, these community assemblages are very complex and highly competitive, usually dominated by one to three species Hanski, ; Ives,
