Manual of Central American Diptera, Volume 1
Manual of Central American Diptera, Volume 1. Edited by B.V. Brown, A. Borkent, J.M. Cumming, D.M. Wood, N.E. Woodley, and M. Zumbado.

The first of a two-volume set, this book is a collaboration of over 40 experts on Diptera, is the first-ever resource for the identification and understanding of Central American flies. Together, the two volumes treat all 106 families of flies found in the region, including discussions of biology, economic importance, classification, identification to the genus level as well as a synopsis of each genus. Volume 1 has Introductory chapters, Adult & Larval Keys, and treatments of the lower Diptera to lower Brachycera (Tipulidae-Dolichopodidae). Volume 2, submitted in June 2009, will cover the Cyclorrhapha.

We have Volume 2 reviewed and are working on the final submission for this month (Nov 2009). It will be a really nice book, thanks to authors like Val.

Got mine in the beginning of the October, but only now I can take a look!!
Unfortunately, the acroceridae section is not what I was expecting. Nevertheless,the book seems to be a great resource for study some samples I have from C.A.

Jorge- Can you tell me, please, what you mean when you say the acrocerid chapter was not what you were expecting?
