Hello,

Anybody here who can tell me what literature to use to identify Dutch Dolichopodidae? I use d'Assis Foncesa (1978), covering the British species, and the on-line key on the Dolichopodidae Homepage, covering Sweden.
Both autors do not cover all the Dutch species though.
So, did I really cath Sciapus maritimus?

Cheers,

Date

Try:
Meuffels, H.J.G., & P. Grootaert, 1990. The identity of Sciapus contristans (Wiedemann, 1817) (Diptera: Dolichopodidae), and a revision of the species group of its relatives. - Bulletin de l'Institut Royal des Sciences Naturelles de Belgique, Entomologie 60: 161-178.

Thanks Paul,

I will try to get hold of the article via the NEV. Hope it is not in French!

Just in case another reader has a copy: please think of me.

Cheers,

I'm thinking of you right now! Shock Grin

The Sciapus paper is in clear and concise english. The authors are friendly guys and will probably send you a copy by mail free of charge, if you drop them a note. If you do this, ask also for a copy of Pollet's revision of Palearctic Achalcus - it is indispensable.

For most north/northwest european Dolies Igor's internet keys + d'Assis-Fonseca is enough. Try to find copies of doli volumes of E. Lindner: Die Fligen Palaearktische Region. It covers only about half of the fauna, and parts authored by Stackelberg are more or less obsolete, but the latter half by Negrobov is very useful, especially the revisions or Medetera and Rhaphium.

If you really want to have something else to work with, I think you should try to get hold of Parent's key in Faune de France. There are some nomenclatorial hicoughs, but with a few recent catalogues and a but of knowledge of the French language you can come a long way.

Thanks for the info, Kahis. Do you happen to know an (e-mail) address to get into contact with Meuffels and/or Grootaert?

Oh, and Paul, if you don't mind, Parent's key is too much French for me Sad.

Cheers,

Thank you all for the information. I received the papers and both Sciapus from Rottumerplaat appeared to be S. maritimus.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
