Nomenclatural studies toward a world list of Diptera genus-group names.
Neal L. Evenhuis, James E. O'Hara, Thomas Pape & Adrian C. Pont, 2010. Nomenclatural studies toward a world list of Diptera genus-group names. Part I: André-Jean-Baptiste Robineau-Desvoidy. - Zootaxa 2373: 1–265.

First paragraph of the two page long abstract:
This is the first in a series of rigorous nomenclatural studies of selected Diptera workers, undertaken as part of the Biosystematic Database of World Diptera (BDWD). A total of 566 genus-group names of Diptera proposed by A.-J.-B. Robineau-Desvoidy are listed, each with all originally included nominal species, method of typification, current taxonomic status, and emendations. A detailed biography of Robineau-Desvoidy is given with discussion of his works and his relationships with contemporaries. In addition, an index to all the species-group names of Diptera proposed by Robineau-Desvoidy (3,204) is given with bibliographic reference to each original citation. Appended to this study are a full bibliography of Robineau-Desvoidy’s works, a list of collectors on which Robineau-Desvoidy based his Diptera studies, a list of collecting localities mentioned in his Diptera works, and a reproduction of the little-known but valuable 1826 Blainville Rapport of Robineau-Desvoidy’s 1830 Essai sur les Myodaires.
