Nancy Carrejo of Universudad dek Valle in Cali, Colombia has set up a
workshop on Neotropical flower flies with specially emphasis on those of
Colombia. The dates are 21-27 February

I have agreed to help her and will present a couple days of material on
all aspects of flower fly taxonomy in ENGLISH. Working keys to all the
Neotropical species along with a up-to-date catalog will be provided to
those who attend, etc.

There will also be field work included.

For full details, please go to her web page at


With best wishes for a productive NEW YEAR. May we all collect, enjoy,
etc., flower flies this coming year.
