Is there any recent Conopidae key or faunistic literature covering the north west of Europe or more precisely the Netherlands?

Thanks in advance

The reference below is still the most up to date key for the Netherlands but you can also try the online keys on Mark's website at http://home.hccne...index.html.

Veen, M. van, 1984. De blaaskopvliegen en roofvliegen van Nederland en Belgi?. Vijfde gewijzigde druk. Jeugdbondsuitgeverij, 's-Graveland.

Maybe one or two years ago there was a long faunistic article about the Conopidae of Friesland (Frisia) in ... either Entomologische Berichten or Nederlandse faunistische Mededelingen.

Thank you for the info. I already have the key Paul mentions. It seems that not much is going on in the conopid scene.

Well, I'm interested in alpine Conopidae. Any suggestions for that region?

Contact Jens-Hermann Stuke (http://www.schweb...stuke.html)
for a truly up-to-date view of what literature should be used for Conopidae.

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
