Walter Reed Biosystematics Unit • Catalog of subfamily Phlebotominae (Diptera: Psychodidae)
[cite:1125173]

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

The Kelp-Flies of North America
An old work (1918) by J. M. Aldrich, but perhaps still useful in trying to ID some Fucellia to species, due its detailed descriptions and helpful line drawings.

If for some reason the link below fails, a stripped-down "full-text" version (i.e. without the nice original page formatting and figures) can be viewed here. (Note: Use the "Find" command in your browser with "The Kelp-Flies of North America"...or you'll have to scroll a long ways to get to the paper!) That said, for most purpos

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).

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."
