I am working in the United Arab Emirates on the inventory of the insects of that country. It is a privately sponsored project and at the end of 2007 a book will be published. Some 160 specialists from 27 countries are collaborating. The sponsor wants the book full with nice big colour photographs. With the Diptera this is complicated. I have received manuscript on the Muscidae. There are 25 species, among them several quite common palaearctic species, but no photographs. I wonder whether members of this forum do have good pictures of some of those species and are willing to let me use them for the book. The more common species in the list are: Musca domestica, M. crassirostris, M. lucidula, M. sorbens, Stomoxys calcitrans, S. niger, Helina coniformis, Lispe modesta, Limnophora quarerna and Coenosia attenuata. Any help will be very welcome.

Hi Tony - The only muscid photos (from your list) I can recall on the site over the last few months are Musca domestica and Stomoxys calcitrans. You're welcome to use my photo (see http://www.dipter...oto_id=529) but there are better photos available. Your best course of action may be to do a search of the site for the species you want and contact the individual photographers direct. I suspect many of them would not require any payment (though several are in the business of selling their photos), but a payment to Paul to keep the site running would be a nice gesture. Wink

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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