Yesterday i looked at a book i didn?t pay attention to in a long time:
"Insects, spiders and other terrestrial arthropods", George C. Mc Gavin, 2000

it?s interesting because it?s got lots of pictures (I still prefer chinery, anyway).
i?ve got the italian edition and foundt many "mistakes", probably it?s me who is wrong, here you are:

*page 139: Mycetophilidae: Platyura and Macrocera: --- both are Keroplatidae. I?ve got the Royal?s Handbook of Mycetophilidae (198..) and it says probably Keroplatidae etc could be different families, but I don?t know when they changed

*page 142: Bombyliidae: Systropus lives in Europe --- http://www.dipter...ad_id=1514

*page 144: Celyphidae: they live in America --- my only reference is they are from China and Sri Lanka ??

*page 149: Oestridae/Gasterophilidae: Hypoderma bovis --- today Hypodermatidae

Mostly an issue of how families are interpreted. These are two of the four main areas of contention when it comes to family limits (the other two are tipuloids and empidoids).


*page 142: Bombyliidae: Systropus lives in Europe --- http://www.diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=7&thread_id=1514

Well, what can I say... Smile

They are Oriental and Afrotropical: http://hbs.bishop...elyph.html.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
