Boxplot showing centroid size of wings for each blow fly species (males and females). Only female specimens of Hemipyrellia pulchra were collected, thus it could not be used for classifying between sexes. Asterisks indicate statistically significant difference between males and females (Mann-Whitney U-test, P < 0.05). Abbreviations: CC, Ch. chani; CM, Ch. megacephala; CN, Ch. nigripes; CP, Ch. pinguis; CR, Ch. rufifacies; CV, Ch. villeneuvi; LC, L. cuprina; LPA, L. papuensis: LPO, L. porphyrina; LS, L. sinensis; HL, He. ligurriens. Each box shows the median as a vertical line across the middle, the quartiles (25th and 75th percentiles) at its ends, horizontal lines out the box indicate minimum and maximum, and outlier data are plotted as black circles
