Hi everybody,

Upcoming April 8 I will visit Corsica for a week. Besides having a vacation
I would like to collect a hoverfly or two. Some quick & dirty googling does
not provide me with lots of information on Syrphidae on Corsica.

I can find three papers which will be useful:

- Doczkal 1996 Description of two new species of the genus Eumerus Meigen
(Diptera, Syrphidae) from Corsica

- Van der Goot, V.S. (1961) Zweefvliegenvangst op Corsica. *Entomologische
Berichten*, *Deel*, 21: 219-223.

- Goeldlin de Tiefenau, P. & Lucas, J.A.W. (1981) *Paragus* (Dipt.,
Syrphidae) de Corse et de Sardaigne. *Bull.Soc.Ent.Suisse*, 54: 389-397.

I have a few questions:

- Does anyone have pdf’s of the 1961 and 1981 papers? (I have the 1996 one)

- Sure I miss some useful literature, any other papers that could be
useful? Does a checklist exist?

- Does anyone has experience with collecting on Corsica or with collecting
in early April in the Mediterranean (I am a bit early in the season I

Many thanks for any help,
