ANNOUNCEMENT: Illustrated keys for the craneflies and related families of the Netherlands, Belgium en Luxembourg (in Dutch)
The undersigned are working on illustrated field keys for the identification of craneflies and related families of the Netherlands, Belgium en Luxembourg (in Dutch). The field keys treat the larger species (wing length 10 mm or more) and, if smaller, the remarkable species of the families Cylindrotomidae, Limoniidae, Pediciidae, Tipulidae, Trichoceridae, and, although less related, the Ptychopteridae.

The first two parts are Introduction and Terminology. Part 3 is the Main Key which leads to 11 keys for the separate groups. Final part is an overview of all species of the Benelux. So, in total 15 parts. The first 5 are available now online. We hope to publish the other parts in 2014. Plans are to have an English version available in 2015.

The first 5 parts are PDF's files, available from the Catalogue of the Craneflies of the World (CCW) at http://nlbif.eti.uva.nl/ccw/. From the "Literature" page of this website some 2400 "Cranefly" PDF's can be downloaded. Search at "Author" for "Peeters" to reach the PDF's for download.

Advantage of online publication is that keys can easily be changed and updated. We look forward to your remarks about the use and content of the keys gladly and with interest.

With best wishes,

Kris Peeters (peeters.heyrman@scarlet.be)

Here in Britain it has been a very poor season for all insects. Most families of fly have been very scarce compared to some years ago. This is about the fifth poor season and it was the worst yet. Wha

May was very atypical and April. April was very cold - the coldest month in 30 years. And May was very rainy. But this does not explain itself why the decrease of insects. Or it is just a normal cyc

well I collect in those places since 2005, and it is perfectly clear there were several families I did not see this year, or even the rather common Tachinidae, for the current year I only saw dozens.

Well it should be compared to the insect diversity and numbers of that region for the last years/decades...

This year in Portugal there was a very clear decrease/waning number and diversity in all insect orders. Fewer tachinids than usual, for example. Fennel flowers are very scarce of insects these days.
