Hi Gayle
I am using these 5 images, on the Chrysops Info page, as the exemplar for Deer Fly identification. Truly superb.
In the future perhaps a series of plates like your equally superb Odonate plates; if interested I could add the labels identifying the critical characters for species identification.

 
Subject ID etc.
We are delighted to have our images used on the Info page. The addition of identifying labels would be great.
Many thanks.
Gayle
