Manual of Nearctic Diptera, vol. 1
The main purpose of this new Manual of Nearctic Diptera is to provide an up-to-date, well-illustrated,easily interpretable means for identifying the families and genera of two-winged flies of America north of Mexico. It is also designed to be a basic reference to a wide spectrum of biosystematic information on Diptera for professional biologists, teachers, students, and informed amateurs.

Historically, the Manual is built upon earlier great works on the biosystematics of Nearctic Diptera.

Two new species and New Records of Psychoda Latreille from Brazil, with comments on Supraspecific Classification of the Genus
Two New Species and New Records of Psychoda Latreille (Diptera: Psychodidae: Psychodinae) From Brazil, With Comments on Supraspecific Classification of the Genus

Two new species of Brazilian Psychoda Latreille are described, and Psychoda alternata Say and P. zetoscota Quate are recorded for the first time from Brazil. Psychoda divaricata Duckhouse, already described from southern Brazil, was recorded in the northeastern part of that country, as well as in the eastern Amazon region. The supraspecific classification proposed for the species of Psychoda according to Quate (= Psychodini of Jeñek) are discussed. A new classification is suggested that considers only one genus, Psychoda, divided into 12 subgenera: subgenus Psychoda Latreille, subgenus Copropsychoda Vaillant, subgenus Falsologima Jeñek & Harten, subgenus Psychodula Jeñek, subgenus Psychomora Jeñek, subgenus Psychana Jeñek & Harten, subgenus Logima Eaton, subgenus Tinearia Schellenberg, subgenus Chodopsycha Jeñek, subgenus Ypsydocha Jeñek, subgenus Psychodocha Jeñek, and subgenus Psycha Jeñek. A list of the Psychoda species from Latin America and the Caribbean region is presented.

Update for a catalog of the Cecidomyiidae (Diptera) of the world. Digital version 1.
This update to A Catalog of the Cecidomyiidae (Diptera) of the World (Gagné 2004b) will allow scientists
and others to track nomenclatural changes and the additional 680 species and 185 genera that have been described since
the cut-off date (sometime in 2003) for Gagné (2004b). The present totals are 6131 species and 783 genera, . This
update lists the taxonomic papers on the group known to me as of March 21, 2010. The original introduction that
follows is changed in minor ways to remain current, but the main points and modus operandi remain the same.
Some changes in presentation of the catalog are made here. All genera, species, and literature cited new to this

Fungus Gnats Online
"This site is documents taxonomy, biology, and evolutionary history of fungus gnats - flies of the superfamily Sciaroidea. It is an expert network effort to provide a trustful source of information and to establish cybertaxonomy for a wonderful group of insects."
