Amendment of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature
The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature proposes the following amendment of the fourth edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (hereafter "the Code"), to allow electronic publishing coupled with archiving of works and registration of new scientific names. In addition to electronic publication, the proposal perforce addresses methods of publication in general. It is followed by an explanation of the procedure for amendment and adoption, and discussion of the reasoning behind the proposal. Comments from the community of zoologists are sought, whether to oppose, support, or suggest improvements and alternatives for the various parts of this proposal.

Reprints in the Downloads section
Everyone is kindly invited to make reprints available through the Downloads section at Diptera.info. Any reprint that is available on the internet can be added to the Downloads section, as long as the link is permanent. If so desired, I am willing to host reprints in electronic format (preferably as PDF's) on the Diptera.info server and include the links in the Downloads section. This may be of interest to dipterists who do not have any webspace available to host their own reprints.

Please, use the site's contact email to send any (links to) reprints you would like to have included.
I have the possibility to scan printed versions and created searchable pdf's but this is time consuming and creates rather large files when the number of pages increases. You can also contact me about converting such reprints to pdf.
The Schlinger Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Diptera Systematics
The Diptera Unit of the Smithsonian Department of Entomology (USNM) is pleased to announce the Schlinger Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in support of the BioSystematic Database of World Diptera. The recipient will conduct collections-based systematics research on flower flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) and will contribute to the development of the BioSystematic Database of World Diptera as well as other Smithsonian-lead initiatives, such as the Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) and the Consortium for the Barcodes of Life (CBoL).

Hello, Sericomyia-Arctoph
ila... this synonymy is based on Nearctic material only. Although very respected authors, I think it is not wise to follow this synonymy without studying palearctic Arctophila

29.11.16 13:37
Approaching 2/3s, which I consider a very good result already. But there is room for improvement. Wink

28.11.16 17:26
so, Paul, almost 50% of the costs is not covered yet.

28.11.16 13:40
Thanks Theo! So it "should" be Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis.

28.11.16 11:45
It is a matter of opinion. Some (modern) authors consider Arctophila no longer valid at genus level.

25.11.16 07:51
Hello! Can someone please tell me what's the actual name for Arctophila bombiforme? There are: Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis, Sericomyia bombiformis and Arctophila bombiforme. Thanks Smile

22.11.16 23:52
Paul I submitted another (better) photo of Madiza pachymera for the gallery

21.11.16 11:49
Thanks Paul

21.11.16 10:36
FYI: The name can also refer to the Dipteran family Clusiidae, named after the genus Heteroneura (= Clusiodes).

Thanks John that's looks good
