Hello,

I am wondering if there is a scale with units that can be used to weigh diptera? I've tried this before using a handheld scale but many flies cannot be measured. A Platystoma lugubre weighed in at 0.03 grams but i don't even know if this is accurate. Do entomologists even weigh diptera? I'd like to document the weight of diptera. I'd like a handheld device like the one in my photo attachmen. Any tips? and it shouldn't cost hundreds of euros.

Best wishes,
John

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
