Dear friends and colleagues! I have a great need for Chvala's The horse flies of Europe, which is the absolutely must-have for any one, who deals with Tabanidae, I think. Unfortunately, it seems to be out of print and not available through booksellers. Does anyone have pdf of this book or know where to get it? I'll be absolutely happy to obtain it! Thanks in advance.Smile

Sergiy, try to find it in any library and pay for making a photocopy. I did in it this way. It should must the cheaper way than to pay to the seller. But you can choose, of course Smile

Thank you Libor, I'll try to find it in the scientific libraries of Ukraine, although dont sure whether it is possible, as on-line search didn't produce any results. Indeed, the price of the European book-sellers is to costly to me and I dont know, whether they ship to Ukraine Sad
