Dear Jeff,  

As soon as I saw the announcement by Veldshop, I immediately ordered it!
Next day I could enjoy the magnificent work all of you achieved!

Congratulations to all of you. 

Best wishes, André

> In mid-May this year, our Field Guide to the Flies of Northeastern North America was published (https://press.princeton.edu/titles/14224.html). This book covers all syrphids found from Tennessee north to the high Arctic (including Greenland) and west to roughly the Mississippi River. All 413 known species from this region are included in the guide. In addition to providing identification information on the species, it includes many previously unpublished things (new synonyms, new combinations, undescribed species, DNA evidence for taxonomic decision making, etc.). The book includes many photos of each species (both lab and field photos), maps that include dots for the exact records as well as predictive ranges, silhouettes showing the actual size of the animals, ecological information, etc. There is also an extensive morphology section, glossary, checklist and bibliography. 
> It is published by Princeton and available from most book sellers (including Amazon, Indigo, Veldshop, Pemberly, etc.). 
> We hope that you enjoy it and help fill in the many gaps in our knowledge before a second edition.
