Vadim Zaitzev & Don Colless. R.I.P.
This message below was passed on the Dan Bickel by David Yeates, CSIRO Entomology:

Donald Henry Colless

24 August 1922 to 16 February 2012

Don started with CSIR0 in 1947 for a period of 3 months followed by roles in North Borneo and Malaya where he conducted mosquito research. In April 1960 he returned to CSIRO and was promoted to chief research scientist in the 70's. Don was the chief curator of the ANIC from 1971-1977 and worked with CSIRO until his retirement in 1987. He returned to CSIRO soon after his retirement as an Honorary Fellow and remained as such for the remainder of his life. Don was a noted systematist and a world authority on the taxonomy and biology of true flies (Diptera).
