8th International Symposium on Syrphidae
Dear Fellow Dipterists and Friends,

We cordially invite you to attend the 8th International Symposium on Syrphidae (ISS8). In this occasion, the ISS8 will take place in the heart of Europe, in the historic town of Monschau (Germany) from 4 th to 8 th of June 2015. After the great time we had in Novosibirsk (Russia), the people voted to have a symposium which reflects a look back to the original model of this symposium: the engagement that stimulates new research collaborations and the delight of sharing experiences on Syrphidae.

We invite you to attend the ISS8 and contribute to the scientific program by presenting your research. Come and meet colleagues, get informed, exchange ideas, and have fun!

Check out: http://iss8.zfmk.de/ for 1st-circular, registration of interest and more information.

We look forward to meeting you all in Monschau.

Best regards,

Björn Rulik & Ximo Mengual

Leonard Kidd passed away
As posted on the Sciaroidea mailig list:

"I have heard that Leonard Kidd, who was co-author with Tony Hutson and Michael Ackland of the 1980 RES Handbook on British fungus gnats, has died in the past week aged 93. I have informed his co-authors.

Leonard was curator at the Oldham Museum and his work on Diptera didn't continue much after his retirement in 1981. His collection is now at the Liverpool Museum. My correspondence with him continued occasionally until 1995, and he wrote in 1992 to thank me for naming Zygomyia kiddi after him.

A loss for the blackfly and syrphid communities
On the Simuliidae mailing list, Ladislav Jedlička passed on the message below he received from Dr. Sukhomlin:

"I want to tell you a sad news. Ukrainian entomology suffered a several loss. Dr. Zinaida Vasilyevna Usova passed away on October 10, 2013."

Dr. Usova was known blackfly specialist , author of many papers and books on Simuliidae, last one probably on blackflies of North Europe (as co-author).

Frank Van de Meutter posted this on the Syrphidae mailing list:

"Dear all, the news has been spread before locally, however, it has not reached the community outside Belgium I think. This spring Luc Verlinden passed away. Luc was the true pioneer of expert Belgian Syrphidae faunistics, however, he soon also specialised in Alpine Syrphidae. He probably is best known for its contributions – several excellent taxonomic papers eg on Cheilosia and Pipizella with the description of a new taxon. People that study the Western European fauna will remember his books too, with their magnificent drawings. These books have educated and inspired many of the people that do study syrphids today, including me. He was unable to continue his valuable work the past ten years due to a most unfortunate accident – his merits cannot be underestimated though. Above all he was a true gentleman loved by all people that have cooperated with him. He will be missed.

Frank"
