Dear SYRPHID specialists,

I would like to fix your attention to ETI's World Taxonomist Database, an
online taxonomists directory service that allows you to find colleagues'
addresses, taxonomic specializations, e-mail addresses and even web pages!
Possibly you could notify the members of your mailing list to this

The WTD has recently been enhanced and updated. Please have a look at:


Registration is a straightforward and fast process, so ETI invites you to
join the 1500 taxonomists that have already entered their data. Please take
extra care of the description of your specialization, as this is what people
are often looking for!

I would like to conclude this mail with a request. The more taxonomists are
listed in the WTD, the more useful the database will be. Please forward this
email to colleagues who haven't registered yet, so that they become aware of
this free service. Thank you!

Best regards,

Ruud Altenburg
