and also having a well-known system of offering help in ID to everyone working on syrphids. If we had a single syrphid website for taxonomy, keys and ID help, this would go a long way towards eradicating such errors. The authors at least tried to identify their material, which is good to see. Some don't get that far.

Subject: [Syrphidae] An example not to follow

Dear all,
the attached article was published today in an Indian journal. Besides many Grammar typos, they cite two genera from Kashmir that only occur in the New World.
How to avoid this? It takes a lot of time to clean this mess afterwards.
Best wishes,
