Checklists of Insects of The British Isles (New series) Part 1: Diptera

Diptera checklist

RES Handbooks for the identification of British Insects. Volume 12 part 1.

Peter Chandler, 1998, 234pp.

The British Diptera fauna has undergone considerable study and revision in recent years and the need for a new check list has become increasingly apparent. This need is evident in the area of recording distribution, which has become very active, especially where databases have become outdated in nomenclature and species composition. This is also related to the important area of assessment of conservation status of species, which has been undergoing review in most groups of Diptera.
