I would also be very interested if there were such a pdf...have been trying to find a copy for ages.

Hi, I've been having very little luck with the RES handbook. If there is any chance you could still provide a PDF of this title it would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Sam

"Manual of Central European Muscidae (Diptera)" now available, but rather expensive. See: https://www.googl...gTEO-7acnA

I have pdf

Posted by Nikita Vikhrev on 01-02-2017 19:10

I have pdf, but it is pdf of previous edition. I think that there are no differences. Not?

Posted by Nikita Vikhrev on 03-02-2017 10:33

According to this source:,Taxonomy,.html
new edition has no difference from the 1st one.
As I guessed...

Posted by Johane on 26-11-2018 09:52

Is it still possible to get a pdf of this book? If so, I would be very happy if someone could send me a copy. :)

I'd be really grateful if I could receive a copy as well.
Thanks in advance,

Posted by Aiwok on 06-05-2020 14:59

Do I need lucky timing or is it something else? Since I guess, I just have to be lucky, to be seen in between the many, more interesting posts, I'll hereby retry.
I'd really like to receive a copy as well.
Best Regards,

one more try on a week day close to lunchtime. Could anyone send a copy to me? Or is there indeed some condition to this, I don't know of?
Best Regrads,

To support our fellow researches one should buy the book in paper.

Edited by Waldgeist on 11-05-2020 10:54

Posted by Aiwok on 11-05-2020 11:57

I would have considered this, if I thoght the researcher would indeed profit from it. I heard the researchers wouldn't usually get a share from these kind of sales. Is that not true? Also the price is rather high for a hobbyist. I just recently depleted my budget for bying 3 book about Asilidae, Auchenorrhyncha, and Heteroptera, all of them together added up to half the price called in the link you sent. I might be eventually able to afford a hardcopy, but there are so many interesting options to chose from, that I go for online sources or pdf frequently. I hope this kind of behaviour isn't cosidered too cheap.

I feel very cheeky asking, but if you don't ask you don't get. We have just started up a Diptera study group here in Leicestershire, UK and are spending a lot of time trying to identify Muscids. This volume would be very helpful to us if it is still available. Thank you.

Posted by Nikita Vikhrev on 03-12-2020 08:58

I want to draw the attention of everyone who is interested in Muscid of Central Europe.
There are two independent keys for Mucsid:
one by Hennig for the Palearctic fauna (in German), which is abbreviated and used by Gregor et al. for Central Europe
and the other for the British fauna by d'Assis Fonseca.
For dipterist from Leicestershire Fonseca's book is even better. For dipterist from other European countries Fonseca's book is still very useful! The best approach is to use both books. Fonseca's pdf is also available.
