Hello all,

I was thinking of using the DELTA format as a basis for storing
syrphidae descriptions and automatically create internet keys from them
in the future.

My question to you is did someone ever do something like this with
Or is there perhaps a better suitable standard format to store insect
descriptions? I preferably use only open formats with open source tools
around it in order to preserve future usability of the data.

kind regards,
