Anthomyiid Study Group and Recording Scheme

The Anthomyiid Study Group and Recording Scheme is collating records and developing identification resources for this group of flies.

Michael Ackland leads the Study Group and Phil Brighton the Recording Scheme.

Michael is keen to receive enquiries on the identification, taxonomy, ecology or study of anthomyiids, supported by specimens wherever possible. Records can be added to iRecord or sent direct to Phil.

Andrew and Janet Graham have been recording many of the common and less common Anthomyiidae from North Wales for several years.  Janet's album of photographs of the whole flies and of the dissected genitalia are an invaluable reference and can be found on flickr at
