The blowfly, Phormia regina (Meigen), is known to overwinter as an adult and may occasionally exhibit flight behavior on warm winter days (Wallis 1962, Dondero and Shaw 1971, Siverly 1972). Stoffolano (1973) reported that both sexes of P. regina experience an imaginal diapause that is characterized by failure of the ovaries to develop in the female and hypertrophy of adult fat body in both sexes. Additionally, both sexes have undeveloped accessory reproductive glands.
