ATTACHMENT
Catalogue of Japanese DIPTERA is now available
"Catalogue of the Insects of Japan, volume 8 Diptera"

A compilation of works of 31 Japanese authorities, published by the Entomological Society of Japan, and distributed overseas by Touka Shobo Co. through JPT (Japan Publications Trading Co., Ltd).

It is published in two volumes, and deals with all Diptera species ever recorded from Japan (124 families, 1,668 genera and 7,658 species, in 1,101 pages). Though this publication is made mainly in Japanese, scientific names, original descriptions, original combinations, type localities, and distributions for all species are given in English (or in Roman alphabet), it is worth purchasing for non-Japanese entomologists.

Price and how to order:
Catalogue of the Insects of Japan, volume 8 Diptera
Part 1, Nematocera - Brachycera Aschiza: 15,700 Yen
Part 2, Brachycera Schizophora and indexes: 15,700 Yen
(Parts 1 2 together 31,400 Yen)
Order at JPT web-site (https://jptco-s.cms2.jp/business/export/contact_e.html)

The passing of Evert I. Schlinger
Evert I. Schlinger passed away during the lunar eclipse in the early morning of Wednesday, October 8, 2014. He was a giant of a man in both stature and accomplishment. He fought for advancing science and improving the environment all of his life. He had a lazar-like ability to dissect problems and find solutions. He was gentle, caring, yet held strong convictions. His work in the systematics of the small-headed fly family Acroceridae was deep and provided the foundation for future workers; his work in biological control was less known but profoundly influenced the course and development of integrated pest management. Perhaps his greatest gift to science was a cadre of students that have made impacts in many areas of entomology and education. For me, he will always be remembered as my best friend and a great mentor.

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
ry.wiley.com/doi/1
0.1111/j.1365-3113
.2008.00422.x/pdf
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.

14.11.17 08:36

13.11.17 13:10

26.10.17 13:37
