Dear Dipterists,

Does anyone know or have access to any Keys to the species of fungus gnats in Britain and Ireland? Genera would suffice but I have trawled through the net and can't seem to find much!! I have a Sciarid key so that's grand but the others are evasive to say the least. Perhaps I am not looking hard enough!!

Thanks a million!

Good luck!

According to the RES homepage there are some (damaged) books left (£ 3,-). You may consult the Fungus Gnats recording scheme of the Dipterists Forum.
