Hi Mike,  have you whole text and drawings of publication Dusek Láska (1974a 
and 1974b)? I believe it will be useful for your study about plasticity. 
Also my first work (Láska, 1959) could be useful. All works vere published 
in less known Journals and I could manage the sending its.

It paids also for further syrphidologists.

Best wishes              Pavel Láska

Hi Brigitte, I not know if I informed you, that in your historic sample from 
Emirates was living Cheilomenes sexmaculata, what material was used for 
breedings of colleague Ruzicka, who found the oviposition-dettering 
pheromone .      All the best           Pavel

Hi Mike,

Perhaps more peripherally relevant is the following

Holloway GJ, Marriott CG, Crocker HJ (1997) Phenotypic plasticity in
hoverflies: the relationship between colour pattern and season in Episyrphus
balteatus and other Syrphidae. Ecol Ent 22, 425-432.

Am guessing you're after more specific temperature ranges but still.

All the best,

Hi Mike

Here are the studies of the temperature effects on development that I know
of. They include some that estimate the developmental threshold. Let me know
if you need pdfs of any of them:

Hi Folks
can anybody help with temperature threshold info for syphids to allow
day-degrees to be to used to model development time of Eristalis,
Melanostoma and Melangyna species?
Your help would be much appreciated.
