An idea! An article per diptera family where keys that are avaliable could be listed. If comments where allowed everybody could contribute ideas for books, articles, online sites, downloadable PDFawkward, Delta keys etc etc ...

Strongly support this (but it is a lot to work on and involves repetition See Weblinks etc.). For my part I am working (with many others) on the Wikipedia pages to provide the lists you suggest and other information-see
http://en.wikiped...i/Sepsidae for an example. For other families go to
These pages are copyright free and can be used by anyone or on any other site without restriction (GNU free licence) . Since the English language sites are international and eventually appear in simplified form in many languages the id lterature listed is for World Fauna.As the sites are expertised I link through to them via the vernacular names in the Glossary.

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
