Death of Ben Foote
Our colleague, Dr. Benjamin A. Foote, passed away as a result of cancer on Sunday, July 7, in Kent, Ohio. His wife, Anita, and several family members were at his bedside at the time. Only a few weeks ago, Ben published a paper in which he honored Anita by naming a new species of Sciomyzidae after her (Pherbellia anitae Foote).

John Rawlings, Chen Young, and I are preparing a detailed biography of Ben to be published in the near future. If you would like to receive a copy, please let me know.

A celebration of life honoring Ben will be held in Kent on August 2. Sympathy cards may be sent to Anita Foote, 492 Harvey St., Kent, OH 44240-2711 USA, email address Afoote8@aol.com.

If you have any photographs of Ben, Anita would appreciate receiving copies of them.

Bill Murphy, Fishers, Indiana USA

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

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.

Help again for 2 French words pls espace interlocaire - orbit? ecorces des arbres - bark of the tree? Thx

so looking at another eg Wangen (Parafacialia) 1.5 – bis 1.75 mals so breit wie das 3. Fühlerglied = Parafacialia 1.5 to 1.75 times as broad as the 3rd antennal segment (postpedicel)

14.08.14 15:26
You read my mind - I was wondering about that too

11.08.14 19:03
And nouns in German always begin with a Capital letter, whatever their place ! That was further misleading ! Shock

11.08.14 15:26
Thank you Stephane - I thought that was a full stop! I wondered why there was a single word!

10.08.14 10:14
e.g : "Der Abstand der inneren Augenrander entspricht etwa der 4fachen Breite des 3. FĂĽhlerglied." (Distance between inner eyes margin about 4 times as broad as 3rd antennal segment)

10.08.14 09:53
Must be "...des 3. + [Name]." which means "of the 3rd [name]" ; the point after a number is the mark of ordinal numbers in German !

07.08.14 15:59
Der abstand der inneren Augenrander entspricht etwa der 4fachen Breite des 3!
