Hi Matthew
thanks for your info. We are trying to model development times in field
so need the minimum threshold temperature that syrphids (particularly of
the Genus Eristalis, Melanostoma and Melangyna) will develop to be able
to calculate degree days. Given the lack of responses, any species would
be useful.
