This is an interactive site for dipterists from all continents dealing with all aspects of dipterology (the study of Diptera: flies and midges) and dipterists. Here you can submit all your links to dipterological websites and events, post your dipterological queries in the forum, submit articles and news on Diptera, and contribute pictures for the Diptera Gallery. Submissions are open for members and members can contribute to the forums.
Enjoy the site and keep helping to build it up to a significant entry point for dipterological research.
Some of you may have noticed, some of you probably not. I have done some code tinkering and can now add image attachments from the forum to the Gallery without too much hassle. I may grab images for the Gallery myself but if you want to have images THAT ARE NOT YOUR OWN added to the Gallery, please send me an email. Do NOT use Private Messages as that may flood my inbox in no time. I will not mind adding your own pictures to the Gallery on request, but, please, realise my time is limited and I cannot continuously scan the forum for possible Gallery additions. And, sorry, the feature is available to administrator only.
Sad news from Warsaw: Prof. Przemys┼éaw Trojan, our member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Dipteron-Wroc┼éaw, the famous Polish Dipterist and an expert in Tabanidae, died on November, 18, 2015 in Nowe Grochale (Leoncin distr.).
He was born on August 22, 1929, in Pruszk├│w near Warsaw.
I am very glad to organise the 7th International Simuliidae Symposium in Zaragoza (Spain) in 2016 presented by the University of Zaragoza. Provisional dates are 5 to 10 September 2016.
Zaragoza is a large Spanish city capital of the province and Aragon. It is the fifth most populated Spanish city with 666,058 inhabitants. It is located on the banks of the Ebro, Huerva and Gallego rivers in the center of a wide valley. Its privileged geographical location makes it an important logistical hub and communications; It is located about 300 km from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao and Toulouse. The city is famous for its folklore, local gastronomy, and landmarks such as the Basilica del Pilar, La Seo Cathedral and the Aljaferia Palace. Together with La Seo and the Aljaferia, several other buildings form part of the Mudejar Architecture of Aragon which is a UNESCOWorld Heritage Site.
Items of interest are:
Report on the 33rd Meeting of the British Simuliidae Group at Birmingham.
Update on the Simulium Genome Project
Notice of the next International Symposium in Zaragoza in 2016
Notice of an important cytotaxonomy review by Adler and Crosskey.

What an intriguing Acrocerid! Much larger head, longer, bee-like antennae, and smaller eyes than our local species of Acroceridae here in the Cape in South Africa. View Photo Comment
