8th International Symposium on Syrphidae
Dear Fellow Dipterists and Friends,

We cordially invite you to attend the 8th International Symposium on Syrphidae (ISS8). In this occasion, the ISS8 will take place in the heart of Europe, in the historic town of Monschau (Germany) from 4 th to 8 th of June 2015. After the great time we had in Novosibirsk (Russia), the people voted to have a symposium which reflects a look back to the original model of this symposium: the engagement that stimulates new research collaborations and the delight of sharing experiences on Syrphidae.

We invite you to attend the ISS8 and contribute to the scientific program by presenting your research. Come and meet colleagues, get informed, exchange ideas, and have fun!

Check out: http://iss8.zfmk.de/ for 1st-circular, registration of interest and more information.

We look forward to meeting you all in Monschau.

Best regards,

Björn Rulik & Ximo Mengual

Leonard Kidd passed away
As posted on the Sciaroidea mailig list:

"I have heard that Leonard Kidd, who was co-author with Tony Hutson and Michael Ackland of the 1980 RES Handbook on British fungus gnats, has died in the past week aged 93. I have informed his co-authors.

Leonard was curator at the Oldham Museum and his work on Diptera didn't continue much after his retirement in 1981. His collection is now at the Liverpool Museum. My correspondence with him continued occasionally until 1995, and he wrote in 1992 to thank me for naming Zygomyia kiddi after him.

Peter [Chandler]"

Choerades has been seperated from Laphria a long time ago. Based on the key by Geller-Grimm this should be C. fimbriata. Only first tergite has white hair. C. fulva the first two tergites have white hair.

I advice everybody, thinking collecting insects as tourist without any official permission, not to do it. Latest example explained in the following mail message from Klaus that I yesterday informed:
"Dear Friends and Colleagues,
For your information: after successful investigations of butterflies in Eastern Turkey, we (two French Friends have been with me) have been arrested in Jusufeli (NE-Turkey). We have to stay for 3 days and we lost all our material and entomological equipment.After this we could leave the country.Please inform other colleagues about this event and that there is a great risk to catch butterflies without an official permission in this country. Greetings"

This result is quiet normal in Turkey. Even we - as scientist at the universities - cannot collect insect in Turkey without permission. The penalty is very high, about 15-20000 Euro per person.
