I am doing a survey on the genus Didea,
in an effort to clear any doubts around this genus, whether or not there could be a fourth species involved. If we are dealing whith an unknown species, this species could occur in the northern regions of Europe, Scotland and maybe (sub-) mountainous areas elsewhere.
For this, I would like to ask people who have 'strange-looking' Didea's in their collection, males and females, if they are willing to help me a hand.

Second queation: I am looking for the type-specimens. So if anyone already knows where the typespecimens are (see: Peck), that would help me speed up the search a lot.

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
