The point is that Calliphoridae s.l. (or s.s., for that matter) is paraphyletic. this conclusion is supported by Recent DNA analysis.
the 'Rhiniinae'. are clearly monophyletic. Thus recent authors prefer to consider them a full family.
the problem of 'Calliphoridae' is of course not resolved by this move.
