I am writing a report on the diptera found in my local park, and I wanted to make it as appealing as possible, so that the wardens and volunteers will be curious enough to read it and take an interest in their flies. I've surveyed the park for the past couple of years, and always received the most generous help with IDs from the members of diptera.info. Since I am going to get a modest fee for writing the report, I thought I should funnel some of it in Paul's direction to help fund and improve diptera.info.

I've come up with a scheme whereby you can help me, just as a bit of fun really. I am going to ask permission to add links in the report to some of the photos in the gallery. For every photo that you give me permission to link to, I will donate 1 euro to diptera.info. I will also donate 20 euros myself as a sort of subscription. I know this won't add up to an enormous amount of money, but every little helps.

Everyone who gives permission will of course be properly acknowledged in the report. I need to know by the end of the year if I can include a link to your image, as the report will be delivered early January, and I will let you know how much we raise in total Smile.

The photos I would like to link to are:

Jorge: Lonchoptera bifurcata (3); Geomyza tripunctata female (4)
Wilde: Odontomyia tigrina (4)
Ben Hamers: Pachygaster atra (1); Anomoia purmunda (1)
Markop: Melanostoma mellinum (1)
Lynkos (Sarah): Melanostoma scalare (1)
Dipdip (Maja): Dasysyrphus albostriatus female (1); Eristalis pertinax male (3)
Nikita: Episyrphus balteatus female (5); Sicus ferrugineus female (1); Sepedon sphegea female (2)
Gerard Pennards: Eupeodes luniger female (1); Syrphus ribesii female (1); Eristalis arbustorum female (1); Syritta pipiens female (1); Opomyza germinationis female (1)
Carnota: Meliscaeva auricollis male (1)
Pierre Duhem: Syrphus ribesii female ovipositing (1); Nemopoda nitidula female (1); Calliphora vicina (1)
Fernando: Sphaerophoria scripta male (3)
Crex: Syrphus ribesii larva (2); Syrphus vitripennis female (1)
Hubert Polacek: Syrphus larva (1)
Alvesgaspar: Xanthogramma pedisequum male (1); Lucilia sericata female (1)
Frank Koehler: Cheilosia vulpina male (1); Volucella zonaria male (4); Anthomyia pluvialis male (1); Pollenia rudis male (1); Scathophaga furcata male (2)
Valter: Eristalis tenax male (4)
Amaira (Anne-Marie Bjorn): Myathropa florea male (1)
Blowave: Merodon equestris vars equestris x flavicens copula (1)
Guenter: Volucella inanis larva (1)
Tony Irwin: Volucella inanis male (1)
Black (Dima): Opomyza florum female (1); Tephritis conura male (2)
Jan Zwaaneveld: Coenosia testacea (1)
Chas Macey: Coenosia tigrina female (1)

Many thanks to all who wish to contribute image links.
Susan

Yes, of course you can use my photos.
And by the way this silly "Dipdip" is only there because I did't succeed in registering the first time and tried several times with different names. My real name is Maja Beutler-Vatter.
With regards Maja

The "beer" fund is now up to 37 euros - very many thanks to all who have given me permission - I think having access to these great photos will improve the report immensely.

I think that some of the people I asked are away at present, or do not log on to the forum very much at the moment. Therefore, if you have a photo in the gallery of any of the species requested and are happy for me to link to it, do let me know and we can boost the fund that way. The deadline is the end of the year to let me know.

The intention is to make it a perfectly serious record of the species seen during the year, but I'm also planning to include some nice catchy species accounts - things like Tony's comment about Anomoia purmunda's solvent sniffing habit and some good gruesome stuff about any of the forensic species - so watch out if you've ever made an off hand comment on diptera.info Grin - you might get quoted (I promise to credit everyone and not misquote people). The park is a fabulous little wildlife oasis in a fairly run down area of London, and the wardens are fantastic, so I am pleased to be able to support them with a report that people might actually read rather than just skim through.

Can I request that Paul spends the money on decent beer and not on that Fosters rubbish?Pfft

Very good idea Susan. I have no photos you could link to, but this was a very good reminder for making a personal donation!

And Paul, keep up the good work! Thank you for all your time and effort!
