Dear colleagues,
My work on the subfamily Dolichopodinae is now
formally published. It was started in 1998 and finished more than 2
years ago. Therefore some recent materials have not been included. I am very
sorry that my Institute is not able to send paper copies abroad. If you
wish to get paper copies for your institution library, please transfer
me by any way some money for post
service: 25 USD (or 100 USD for express garantpost) or equivalent in
euro or roubles for one copy plus 10 USD for every additional copy in
the same parcel. Please ask me for details.

Review of Afrotropical Dolichopodinae (Diptera: Dolichopodidae). Igor

catalogue and keys to 8 genera and 164 Afrotropical species of
