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.

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
