Caption: Forensic examination. Male forensic scientist using a microscope to examine a rove beetle (family Staphylinidae) found on a corpse. The beetle's head is shown on the monitor at upper left. Samples of preserved flies can be seen above their larvae in the case at lower left. Like the flies, rove beetles are attracted to carrion such as human corpses. The number and type of insects found on a long-dead corpse, as well as their stage of development, can aid in determining the time of death. Photographed at the Institute Recherche Criminelle in France.
