A Review of the Genus Juriniopsis Townsend
Abstract: Problems of identification and the characters of the male genitalia are reviewed, with a key to the seven species. Lectotypes are designated for Juriniopsis adusta (Wulp), its synonym J. myrrhea (Brower and Bergenstamm), and Parafabricia nitidula (Wulp), the last a new generic reference that clarifies a badly mixed series which involved Juriniopsis in part.

Bug pheromones (Hemiptera, Heteroptera) and tachinid fly host-finding
Abstract: "Data and observations on wild tachinid flies that were attracted to traps baited with known or suspected pheromones for the following stink bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) are reported: Podisus maculiventris (SAY), Euschistus tristigmus (SAY), Thyanta custator accerra MCATEE, Acrosternum hilare (SAY), and Halyomorpha halys (STÅL). Halyomorpha halys, called the brown marmorated stink bug, is a newly invasive species in the eastern U. S., while the other stink bugs listed are native North American species. The following known tachinid parasitoids of stink bugs were captured: Euclytia flava (TOWNSEND) (Phasiinae), Gymnosoma par (WALKER) (Phasiinae), Euthera tentatrix LOEW (Dexiinae), Hemyda aurata ROBINEAU-DESVOIDY (Phasiinae), Cylindromyia fumipennis (BIGOT) (Phasiinae), and Trichopoda pennipes (F.) (Phasiinae).

Keys to the Genera and Species of Blow Flies (Diptera:Calliphoridae) of America North of Mexico - Terry Whitworth
This is a link to a pdf file of Dr. Terry Whitworth's paper on Calliphoridae that appeared in the Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington in June of 2006. The key has many beautifully detailed illustrations and there is also a simple key that will allow one to discriminate calliphorids from other similar Diptera. I emailed him in January 2008 and he generously agreed to share this paper from his web site link (www.birdblowfly.com).
