Table 5 Percentage of correctly classified specimens in each blow fly species and between sexes of each species performed by using a permutation test with 10,000 rounds in MorphoJ

From: Wing morphometrics as a tool in species identification of forensically important blow flies of Thailand

Species % correctly classified between species (No. of correctly classified/Total no. of specimens) % correctly classified between sexes (No. of correctly classified/Total no. of specimens)
Males Females
Ch. megacephala*** 98.1 (52/53) 87.5 (21/24) 89.7 (26/29)
Ch. chani*** 100 (40/40) 100 (17/17) 100 (23/23)
Ch. pinguis 97.4 (38/39) 62.1 (18/29) 50 (5/10)
Ch. nigripes 90.6 (29/32) 82.4 (14/17) 73.3 (11/15)
Ch. rufifacies*** 97.9 (46/47) 84.0 (21/25) 81.8 (18/22)
Ch. villeneuvi** 100 (39/39) 95.7 (22/23) 100 (16/16)
L. cuprina*** 72.4 (21/29) 86.7 (13/15) 78.6 (11/14)
L. papuensis*** 71.9 (23/32) 77.8 (7/9) 82.6 (19/23)
L. porphyrina** 83.3 (15/18) 100 (11/11) 71.4 (5/7)
L. sinensis* 75 (6/8) 100 (4/4) 75 (3/4)
He. ligurriens*** 87.5 (28/32) 92.9 (13/14) 88.9(16/18)
He. pulchra 33.3 (1/3)
  1. Statistically significant differences between males and females based on Mahalanobis distances are denoted with asterisks (permutation 10,000 rounds in MorphoJ: ***P < 0.0001; **P < 0.01; *P < 0.05). Hemipyrellia pulchra has only females, thus it could not be used for classifying between sexes
