ANNOUNCEMENT: Illustrated keys for the craneflies and related families of the Netherlands, Belgium en Luxembourg (in Dutch)
The undersigned are working on illustrated field keys for the identification of craneflies and related families of the Netherlands, Belgium en Luxembourg (in Dutch). The field keys treat the larger species (wing length 10 mm or more) and, if smaller, the remarkable species of the families Cylindrotomidae, Limoniidae, Pediciidae, Tipulidae, Trichoceridae, and, although less related, the Ptychopteridae.

The first two parts are Introduction and Terminology. Part 3 is the Main Key which leads to 11 keys for the separate groups. Final part is an overview of all species of the Benelux. So, in total 15 parts. The first 5 are available now online. We hope to publish the other parts in 2014. Plans are to have an English version available in 2015.

The first 5 parts are PDF's files, available from the Catalogue of the Craneflies of the World (CCW) at http://nlbif.eti.uva.nl/ccw/. From the "Literature" page of this website some 2400 "Cranefly" PDF's can be downloaded. Search at "Author" for "Peeters" to reach the PDF's for download.

Advantage of online publication is that keys can easily be changed and updated. We look forward to your remarks about the use and content of the keys gladly and with interest.

With best wishes,

Kris Peeters (peeters.heyrman@scarlet.be)

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra

it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

13.11.17 13:10
