QUALITY CONTROL OF Cochliomyia macellaria (FABRICIUS) (DIPTERA: CALLIPHORIDAE) IMATURES IN COLONY Quality control of Cochliomyia macellaria (Fabricius) (Diptera: Calliphoridae) larvae and pupae in colony was observed during eight consecutive generations. A diet consisting of decomposing horse flesh was used, and the relation of 0.02 g egg mass/ 200 g diet was established. The larval and pupal viability at 27 oC and 30 oC temperature, 65 ± 10% UR and 14 h photofase, respectively, were greater than 80%. The egg to pupae period and the body mass of postfeeding larvae variation were 4.7-7.0 days and 59.40-70.30 mg, respectively. The emergence ocurred 8.0-12.0 days after the neolarvae innoculation in diet. The study has not show a linear relation between the analised characteristic and monitored generations
