Hoi Sander,
Mooi eiland. Twee keer geweest in meivakantie.
Prachtig wandelen en ook best mooie vogels gezien, helaas geen Corsicaanse boomklevers.
Ook wel wat zweefjes gezien, maar niet veel spannends. 
Ik kan me nog wel iets herinneren van een paper over twee endemische Eumerus soorten van Corsica.
Mogelijk beschreven door van der Goot of Doesburg.
Fijne vakantie.
Ik ga met Pasen naar Andalusie. Hopelijk deze keer Knobbelmeerkoeten, Marmereend, Witkopeend en Spaanse Keizerarend heb ik al.
Met vriendelijke groet,
Leendert-Jan van der Ent

Onderwerp : [Syrphidae] Corsica
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 guess)?
Many thanks for any help,
