I am realizing a PhD project "Revision of genus Gymnosoma (Diptera: Tachinidae) with using DNA analysis".
For this project I am searching specimens of Gymnosoma species from Europe, especially:
G. acrosterni
G. brachypeltae
G. carpocoridis
G. costatum
G. inornatum
G. rungsi
G. siculum

I would be grateful for specimens of this species. I can offer some other tachinids species from Poland.

Btw. Maybe someone have this paper inf pdf?
C. Dupuis z 1963: Essai monographique sur les Phasiinae (Dipteres Tachinaires parasites d'Heteropteres), 461 pp, 73 figs.

Hello! Smile

I am also trying to find this book. Do you have any books on the Phasiinae?

Drogi Milosz

All species you have mentioned are either very rare and/or very cryptic. FOr instance, carpocoridis should be distinguished only by the eggs, acoording to Dupuis. I'm not convinced (yet).
so I can't tell you whether I have carpocoridis in my collection !

What are the specifications for the quality of material you need ? Fresh ? Not killed by ethylacetate ?

Yes, I know that this species are rare (and I would say also doubtful)... That is why I try to collect this species (even with not convinced determination).

I can use all type of material: fresh/in alcohol/"ethylacetated"...

I will also try to find "morphological key characters".
