Hello,

I'm a portuguese entomologist mainly interested in Hybotidae but I like to collect every other Diptera.
This summer I will be in Calakmul (and other parts of Yucatan Peninsula) for almost 3 months, where I will have time to set up 2 MT, pan traps, pit falls and collect directly by using a sweep net.
As a major outcome I want to publish a paper on the recorded species.

Are you interested in taking part of this project by providing your taxonomy expertise?
At the moment, I contacted two experts who took part: Marc Pollet (Dolichopodidae) and Vicente Hernandez (Tephritidae, Ulidiidae, Richardiidae).

I would be more than happy and grateful to receive some support, as material or financial (to cover the very expensive travel costs), sharing our project, etc.
To know more about it (it has 3 main objectives but, for me, obtaining Diptera is the most important) or offer support, check:

Thank you very much!
