The common green bottle fly is a blow-fly found in most areas of the world, and the most well-known of the numerous green bottle fly species. It is 10–14 mm long, slightly larger than a housefly, and has brilliant, metallic, blue-green or golden coloration with black markings. It has short, sparse black bristles and three cross-grooves on the thorax. The wings are clear with light brown veins, and the legs and antennae are black. The maggots of the fly are used for maggot therapy.
