Systema Dipterorum = closed down
Whether any one care or not, the Systema Dipterorum (www.diptera.org) online database to names of flies has been closed down.

This database which has had various names over the years as I have migrated from different jobs but never really has been supported to provide information about fly names is finally being retired as I have been kicked out by Bob Robinson of Smithsonian of my last home after almost a half century of what I thought was a useful and productive association.

However, this has a positive aspect. Clearly the Smithsonian has decided Diptera names and associated information has no value to the public. Whether that is true or not now can be determined. So, if you feel Systema Dipterorum was useful, complain! The key players are Jon Coddington (coddingtonj@si.edu) and Bob Robinson (robinsonb@si.edu).

Sincerely,

Chris [Thompson]
By now the site has re-opened.

That's a shame. I did use it and find it useful. My thanks to Chris for making it available.

Echte Schei*e! We must complain, guys!

We find Systema Dipterorum as a useful site. On the other hand, we are very familiar to such unfriendly behaviours like intimidation, mobbing, etc.
Following links are recommended to everybody.

I am sorry for this Chris, I find it very useful...
Could it be housed somewhere else? What about the copyrights?
