As a result of research carried out in June and July 2017, at five sites in north-western Poland with different characteristics, 769 individuals belonging to three dipteran families of forensic significance were collected. The most abundant family was Calliphoridae, which was represented by 8 species (Calliphora vicina, Calliphora loewi, Lucilia bufonivora, Lucilia caesar, Lucilia illustris, Lucilia sericata, Lucilia silvarum, and Lucilia richardsi). The experiment examines differences in the dominance of individual species depending on the habitat type and the time of year, and also shows correlations between environmental parameters and individual taxa.
