The Wohlfahrtia magnifica living in Mongolia plateau was the only pathogen of Bactrian camel vaginal myiasis. In this paper, the head, thorax, abdomen, wing, leg and male and female identification of W. magnifica were observed and described by ultra depth imager. The W. magnifica was a kind of medium and large flies and covered with silvergray pollen. The head had compound eyes, mouthparts, antenna, and a large amount of bristles. The dorsal of thorax was covered with silver-gray pollen and the mesothorax was developed, the legs, wings and halter were attached to thorax. The abdomen was divided into five abdominal segments, its dorsal had symmetrical black patch and the ventral was gray-black.The wings were composed of veins and cells. The leg was divided into propodium, mesopodium and metapodium. The structure of terminalia was difference between male and female, the female flies had serration end edges in the caudal end of abdominal segment and its terminalia was concave and the anal papilla was grayish white.To the male flies, its end edges of the caudal end of abdominal segment was smooth and its terminalia was convex, the dark yellow saccular process was shaped like a spoon swollen.This results would enrich people’s understanding of the biological characteristics of W. magnifica in the Mongolia Plateau.
