Table 7 Percentage of correctly classified specimens in each species and between sexes of each blow fly species performed 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*** 96.2 (51/53) 91.7 (22/24) 96.6 (28/29)
Ch. chani*** 97.5 (39/40) 100 (17/17) 100 (23/23)
Ch. pinguis 94.9 (37/39) 65.5 (19/29) 50 (5/10)
Ch. nigripes 87.5 (28/32) 35.3 (6/17) 53.3 (8/15)
Ch. rufifacies*** 97.9 (46/47) 84 (21/25) 86.4 (19/22)
Ch. villeneuvi** 100 (39/39) 95.7 (22/23) 100 (16/16)
L. cuprina 79.3 (23/29) 53.3 (8/15) 64.3 (9/14)
L. papuensis 78.1 (25/32) 44.4 (4/9) 69.6 (16/23)
L. porphyrina 94.4 (17/18) 54.5 (6/11) 42.9 (3/7)
L. sinensis 62.5 (5/8) 75 (3/4) 25 (1/4)
He. ligurriens 75 (24/32) 64.3 (9/14) 38.9 (7/18)
He. pulchra 0 (0/3)
  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). Hemipyrellia pulchra has only females, thus it could not be used for classifying between sexes
