Attachments to Gallery
Some of you may have noticed, some of you probably not. I have done some code tinkering and can now add image attachments from the forum to the Gallery without too much hassle, but only when they are not on remotes servers. I may grab images for the Gallery myself but if you want to have images THAT ARE NOT YOUR OWN added to the Gallery, please send me an email. Do NOT use Private Messages as that may flood my inbox in no time. I will not mind adding your own pictures to the Gallery on request, but, please, realise my time is limited and I cannot continuously scan the forum for possible Gallery additions. And, sorry, the feature is available to administrator only.

Jan Knoz passed away October 28, 2014
Dear colleagues,

it seems to me that in recent time I have been the carrier of bad news. Excuse me for that please.

Only recently, with one year delay, we have been informed that Prof. Jan Knoz, Brno (Czech Republic) passed away after losing his battle against a hard illness on October 28, 2014, in the age of 83.

Sincerely,

L. Jedli─Źka
VII International Simuliidae Symposium 2016
MeetingsDear colleagues,

I am very glad to organise the 7th International Simuliidae Symposium in Zaragoza (Spain) in 2016 presented by the University of Zaragoza. Provisional dates are 5 to 10 September 2016.

Zaragoza is a large Spanish city capital of the province and Aragon. It is the fifth most populated Spanish city with 666,058 inhabitants. It is located on the banks of the Ebro, Huerva and Gallego rivers in the center of a wide valley. Its privileged geographical location makes it an important logistical hub and communications; It is located about 300 km from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao and Toulouse. The city is famous for its folklore, local gastronomy, and landmarks such as the Basilica del Pilar, La Seo Cathedral and the Aljaferia Palace. Together with La Seo and the Aljaferia, several other buildings form part of the Mudejar Architecture of Aragon which is a UNESCOWorld Heritage Site.

For more information go to http://www.zaragoza.es/ciudad/turismo?idioma=en&seleccionar=OK

Best regards and I hope to see all of you in Zaragoza.

Ignacio Ruiz

Thaumatomyia glabra (Meigen, 1830), Chloropidae. The only European Thaumatomyia species with largely reduced hairs on the body [the only reason for Loew (1866) to create an own genus for it, the synonym Chloropisca]. Well known as a chloropid with zoophagous larvae, predators of root lice (Pemphigidae), e.g. on the roots of carrots. Different from its congeneric species notata (Meigen) it rarely aggregates in swarms in autumn. But single specimens regularly enter the notata swarms. In North America several publications report swarms. The species is well known as a flower visitor as documented on this photo. The first detailed article on the biology: Parker, J.R. 1918: The life history and habits of Chloropisca glabra Meig., a predaceous oscinid (chloropid).- Journal of economic Entomology 11: 368-380.

This not a Psychoda, I think. The way the wings are held is not OK, the venation isn't. It is somewhere i tribus Telmatoscopini.

I don't think this is Clogmia albipunctata, it lacks the white dots along the wing border. And it has too much white on the prothorax. But it defnitely is of tribus Telmatoscopini, as Clogmia is.

Pachylophus, Loew, 1858, Chloropidae, is a very characteristic component of the Afrotropical chloropid fauna with species also in the Middle East. Many species are still undescribed and many are hosts of parasitic ascomycete fungi, the Laboulbeniales. All species are viviparous, in most species two larvae develop synchronously. The hind femora are always enlarged.

The fly is Paradryomyza spinigera, not Pseudoneuroctena senilis. The ventral spines on hind femora are diagnostic for Paradryomyza./Sven

23.05.16 12:37
Thx very much Paul

Yup, Schwinger is halter, a yellow halter in this case. Smile

21.05.16 12:32
Can anyone help out with the German word Schwinger gelb - is this an old word for Haltere?

Paedogenesis, reproduction before adulthood, is well known in Heteropezini.

The sentence translates as 'in the very wet and decayed wood of an old elm tree'.
