Jan Knoz passed away October 28, 2014
Dear colleagues,

it seems to me that in recent time I have been the carrier of bad news. Excuse me for that please.

Only recently, with one year delay, we have been informed that Prof. Jan Knoz, Brno (Czech Republic) passed away after losing his battle against a hard illness on October 28, 2014, in the age of 83.

Sincerely,

L. Jedli─Źka
VII International Simuliidae Symposium 2016
MeetingsDear colleagues,

I am very glad to organise the 7th International Simuliidae Symposium in Zaragoza (Spain) in 2016 presented by the University of Zaragoza. Provisional dates are 5 to 10 September 2016.

Zaragoza is a large Spanish city capital of the province and Aragon. It is the fifth most populated Spanish city with 666,058 inhabitants. It is located on the banks of the Ebro, Huerva and Gallego rivers in the center of a wide valley. Its privileged geographical location makes it an important logistical hub and communications; It is located about 300 km from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao and Toulouse. The city is famous for its folklore, local gastronomy, and landmarks such as the Basilica del Pilar, La Seo Cathedral and the Aljaferia Palace. Together with La Seo and the Aljaferia, several other buildings form part of the Mudejar Architecture of Aragon which is a UNESCOWorld Heritage Site.

For more information go to http://www.zaragoza.es/ciudad/turismo?idioma=en&seleccionar=OK

Best regards and I hope to see all of you in Zaragoza.

I think min Xanthempis both do, in other subgenera the males hunt and females eat.

25.04.17 14:14
Hello, can any1 tell me if both male and female Empis flies eat other flies or is it just the female? Thx

21.04.17 15:08
Thanks very much Paul

Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!

11.04.17 13:37
In Dutch some would use it as plural, for 'exemplaar' (exemplar or specimen). Ten exx. then is ten specimens.

10.04.17 16:21
Thanks Phil I am thinking exuviae but I can't find the abbrev. so perhaps so

09.04.17 12:25
I haven't come across it but I suspect it means 'examples'.

08.04.17 11:27
Hell has anyone come across the meaning of exx? and what it means

01.04.17 11:43
Thanks very much
