In July of 1997, the remains of a human stillborn infant were found at an elevation of 2,835 m in Summit County, CO. Larvae recovered from the infant were reared to adulthood and identified as Calliphora terraenovae (Macquart), Protophormia terraenovae (Robineau-Desvoidy), and Phormia regina (Meigen). These represent new county records for high elevation species in Colorado.
