Coffin Fly WIP (Conicera tibialis)

This is a model I am working on of the Phorid fly Conicera Tibialis AKA the coffin fly. These little buggers dig six feet in the ground, burrow into a coffin, and lay their eggs in a human corpse. The eggs hatch and the larva do their thing. They then dig their way back up and out of the ground. No I'm not making any of this up. Pretty gross huh? Several entomologists at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum have been advising me on this model. Still working out the genitalia.
