Thread subject: :: Contributions to a Manual of Palaearctic Diptera

Posted by tyrolean on 04-07-2012 23:17

Unfortunately, all the volumes of this series are out of print and not available through booksellers. I think that such important literature should be available in pdf form. Does anyone have pdf files of these books or know where to get the series?

I can put them up for download at the site (for members only to prevent any copyright issues that might become imminent if they are available for free download). Is the size not too big for Dropbox? Then you can use that to get them to me.

I hope for regular members like us, not in a "private" download category.

I agree with you but what is dropbox ?

Posted by Cesa on 05-02-2013 19:21

I think Dropbox is an internet program used for very big sized files for transferring. For further information, I think Paul Beuk will be helpful for you.

Did you find a solution for the upload problem? I'm very interested in the pdfs too.
Cheers Sven

Hi, I read about the download link for the Contributions. Is this still somewhere available?

Hi !
Does anyone have pdf files of the volume 2 (Nematocera) ? Thank you !

Posted by Paul Beuk on 06-12-2020 10:38

Any particular family you are interested in?

Posted by PTillier on 06-12-2020 11:38

Tipulidae, Pediciidae, Cylindrotomidae and Trichoceridae
Thank you

Posted by Paul Beuk on 06-12-2020 18:31

I thought it might be those families but the true tipuloid families are not included in the four published volumes. The Trichoceridae are its way via email.
