Summary
The cosmopolitan fly Calliphora vicina has been able to conquer all bioregions, from the tropics to the arctic. Discovered on the Kerguelen Islands in 1978, its establishment is linked to rising temperatures observed since the 1980's. Today, it competes with and threatens a native wingless fly.
