"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.
