Posted by Andrzej on 24-01-2011 09:04


Dear Diptera friends,
I have started to make an update of Heleomyzid flies in the Fauna Europaea.
I hope that within one month or slightly longer I will finish checking and adding all new published records I found during last years.
Please be patient. I am not financially supported to do it at once! I will inform you when I finish it at the

Warning! My work address has been erroneously changed without my permission at the FauEu web page!
(The name of organization which I represent is not this one: http://www.faunae...amp;id=464!).
I have tried to change the address of organization during last two months but still unsuccessfully :-( (emails were sent personally to the Web-master).

Note please, that I am still working at the Institute of Biology, Wroclaw University of Life & Environmental Sciences in Wroclaw, Poland.

A paper on the heleomyzidae of Sweden is in press with Dipterists Digest (following my evaluation of material from the Swedish Malaise Trap Project).

Nice to hear about it ! -)
I am waiting only for a Webmaster permission to add a new family to the FauEu ! The families I mentioned will be without changes. Please note that Chiropteromyza wegelii Frey is a junior synonym of Chiropteromyza broersei (de Meijere) described in 1946 from the Netherlands ;)

Dear Diptera friends,
an new update of FauEu has been published (ver. 2.4).

Plz note, that I have decided to include to the database the family Cnemospathididae concerning Prosopantrum flavifrons recorded last years from UK and Germany but I had not the possibility to do it :|.

This species was newly recorded in the Northern Hemisphere by Ismay & Smith in 1994 from UK, where a second site has been also reported (Cole, 1996).

In 2004 Stuke & Merz recorded this species from Norderney (East Frisian Islands, Germany). At time no males have been found because all the populations are parthenogenetic !
