The Accumulation of Age Pigment by the Fleshfly, Sarcophaga Bullata Parker (Diptera: Sarcophagidae).

G Ettershank, I Macdonnell and R Croft

Australian Journal of Zoology 31(2) 131 - 138
Published: 1983


A technique is described for extracting, characterizing and quantifying the age pigment lipofuscin in the fleshfly Sarcophaga bullata. Accumulation of this pigment in the larvae is a linear function of time, some is disposed of at the pupal stage, then linear-function accumulation resumes in adults. Assay of this pigment may yield a technique for aging insects if it can be applied to field populations.
