Bumper pack of resources from the Dipterists Forum workshop

A number of new resources were prepared for this workshop and are now available to download from this website:

Plus, as previously announced, the new draft atlas and recording scheme newsletter no. 5.

And don't forget all the other guides on our identification pages and resources page.

Over time, some of the above resources will be converted to web pages, which will allow the photos to be seen at larger size.

Many people have helped in the preparation of the workshop and these resources - special thanks to Martin Drake for organising the workshop; Morten Falck for permission to adapt his Norwegian key to Thereva species; Chris Raper and the Diptera curators at the Natural History Museum for help with photo-stacking and for loaning specimens, plus further specimen loans from the BENHS; additional photos from Malcolm Storey and Steven Falk; the Biological Records Centre for assistance with preparing the handouts.
