Thread subject: :: dipterists active in Morocco, Algeria?

Posted by Louis Boumans on 14-04-2011 15:17

Dear Forum members,

Do you know any dipterists, or faunisticially interested freshwater ecologists active in North Africa?

For my phylogeographic work on craneflies related to Tipula maxima, I'd like to have one or more samples from North Africa. The species have been reported and collected a few times from the Rif mountains in Morocco and from Biskra in Algeria, but I have no idea how commmon they are in NA. Of course i should go and try to collect some myself. But time is always limiting, and perhaps there are actually people out there who have recently collected specimens. One never knows ..

Any suggestions on whom I might contact on this matter are welcome!

You should look up Dr. Kwabena Ekua he is a specialist in that particular department. I believe last time I checked he lived in Morocco.
