The Calliphorinae are a subfamily of the blow flies family Calliphoridae. The distinguishing characteristics of this subfamily are: the stem vein is bare, the lower calypter and the proepisternal depression are bristly, but the suprasquamal region is bare or with only a few random bristles. The thorax is dull and bears fine hairs, and the abdomen is usually colored shining blue.
The Bengaliinae (which have more yellowish and dull abdomens) are usually included herein, as are the Luciliinae and Polleniinae in older treatments. The latter two are more often considered separate subfamilies in recent works.
