Is there a European equivalent of "Manual of Central American Diptera" or "American Insects: A Handbook of Insects of America North of Mexico" by Arnett

I have "Insects of Britain and Western Europe" by Chinery. There seem to be lots of very specialised books but not too much with a broad but deep scope.
Thanks, Andrew

You should have a look at the "Manual of Palaearctic Diptera", expensive, but with a broad but deep scope.
