Simuliid Bulletin No. 47 is now available
Newsletters, etc.Dear colleagues,

The Simuliid Bulletin No 47, January 2017, has now been posted on the SIMULIID-BULLETIN Blog site where it can be read or downloaded. It contains a report on the VII International Simuliid Symposium at Zaragoza, September 2016, and part 2 of Prof. Rivoschecci's paper. Because there are so many graphics, the file is large, (19Mb) however I have included a low resolution version which I recommend you try first.

Please note the next Symposium has now been fixed for 27-29 June 2018 in Birmingham, England.

9th International Symposium on Syrphidae
MeetingsDear Fellow Dipterists and Friends,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th International Symposium on Syrphidae (ISS9). Taking place for the first time in the Neotropical Region, the ISS9 will be held in Curitiba (Brazil) from 28th August to 1st September 2017.

We are sure it will be an excellent opportunity to establish new research collaborations and share experiences on Syrphidae.

To receive further information about the ISS9, please send a message to syrphidae9@gmail.com

We look forward to meeting you all in Curitiba.

Best regards,

Mirian Morales & Luciane Marinoni

Attachments to Gallery
Some of you may have noticed, some of you probably not. I have done some code tinkering and can now add image attachments from the forum to the Gallery without too much hassle, but only when they are not on remotes servers. I may grab images for the Gallery myself but if you want to have images THAT ARE NOT YOUR OWN added to the Gallery, please send me an email. Do NOT use Private Messages as that may flood my inbox in no time. I will not mind adding your own pictures to the Gallery on request, but, please, realise my time is limited and I cannot continuously scan the forum for possible Gallery additions. And, sorry, the feature is available to administrator only.

I don't think this is C.albipunctata. Maybe C.tristis.

Occasionally I find growths on water beetles that appear to be fungi, such as

Are you able to say whether these are Laboulbeniales, please?

Thaumatomyia glabra (Meigen, 1830), Chloropidae. The only European Thaumatomyia species with largely reduced hairs on the body [the only reason for Loew (1866) to create an own genus for it, the synonym Chloropisca]. Well known as a chloropid with zoophagous larvae, predators of root lice (Pemphigidae), e.g. on the roots of carrots. Different from its congeneric species notata (Meigen) it rarely aggregates in swarms in autumn. But single specimens regularly enter the notata swarms. In North America several publications report swarms. The species is well known as a flower visitor as documented on this photo. The first detailed article on the biology: Parker, J.R. 1918: The life history and habits of Chloropisca glabra Meig., a predaceous oscinid (chloropid).- Journal of economic Entomology 11: 368-380. (See id=71905&pid=305995#post_305995)

This not a Psychoda, I think. The way the wings are held is not OK, the venation isn't. It is somewhere i tribus Telmatoscopini.

Pachylophus, Loew, 1858, Chloropidae, is a very characteristic component of the Afrotropical chloropid fauna with species also in the Middle East. Many species are still undescribed and many are hosts of parasitic ascomycete fungi, the Laboulbeniales. All species are viviparous, in most species two larvae develop synchronously. The hind femora are always enlarged.

The fly is Paradryomyza spinigera, not Pseudoneuroctena senilis. The ventral spines on hind femora are diagnostic for Paradryomyza./Sven

Hello, can any1 tell me if both male and female Empis flies eat other flies or is it just the female? Thx

21.04.17 15:08
Thanks very much Paul

18.04.17 20:24
Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!

11.04.17 13:37
In Dutch some would use it as plural, for 'exemplaar' (exemplar or specimen). Ten exx. then is ten specimens.

10.04.17 16:21
Thanks Phil I am thinking exuviae but I can't find the abbrev. so perhaps so

09.04.17 12:25
I haven't come across it but I suspect it means 'examples'.

08.04.17 11:27
Hell has anyone come across the meaning of exx? and what it means

01.04.17 11:43
Thanks very much

25.03.17 21:53
Ibid. is short for Latin ibidem, meaning 'in the same place', so = 'same as the previous reference'. Smile

25.03.17 13:09
Cab any1 help out with the full name if the journal IBID Thx
