The Dark Wizard Raczidian being consumed by maggots as a result of attempting to cast a Patronus Charm.

A maggot was the larval form of some varieties of fly, including houseflies, cheese flies, and blowflies.[1]

Luna Lovegood believed in pale, brain-like creatures called Aquavirius Maggots, but it is likely that these did not exist.[2]

If a Dark wizard attempted to cast the Patronus Charm, rather than summoning a spirit guardian, as the spell normally would, a horde of maggots would burst out of the caster's wand and start to consume him or her. The first recorded instance of this happening was with the Dark Wizard Raczidian.[3]

Kreacher sent a package of maggots to Harry Potter for Christmas in 1996 as a means of showing his dislike for his new master.[4]
