Dear Dipterophiles,
I wish to make contact with some collections managers, Diptera section from a variety of Museums, if you work with a museum maybe you can put me in touch with somebody.

I am trying to determine my Micropezidae: Diptera, but the key is only for central Europe. I have a specimen of Micropeza genus that is not on the key,Frown this is not a surprise really there are four species known from Europe not on Rohacek and Bartak's key, M. atripes, M.grallatrix, M. hispanica and M. kowallii. Written not only in alphabetical order but also in likeyhood of being the needed specimen based on known distribution.

My next step in determining my unknown species must be to physically compare it with these 4 species, or something elseShock, and so I am trying to find the specimens, any help will be gratefully received.

Thanks Gordon
Nikita Vikhrev
