Dear all

Due to Covid-19 my plans have been postponed a bit and could not be announced during the scheduled 11th International Symposium on Syrphidae so through this channel I inform you all of a new foundation entirely dedicated to Syrphidae.

I would like all of you to let me know what you think of my concept, and any comments are welcome.

The starting capital for the foundation is brought together by a donation through Ximo Mengual of the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig, Bonn and donations by myself.

Apart from the foundation aiming at furthering the study on Syrphidae in a wide sense the idea is that it would host a new journal specially dedicated to Syrphidae, with the suggested name Journal of International Syrphidology. This is to be regarded as the successor of the Syrphidae journal "Volucella" which was published in the years 1995-2007.
For this journal I seek co-editors and also reviewers, remarks on how to produce this journal are also welcome.

Please have a look at my site: Syrphidae in trees for further information:


Best wishes,


Prof Francis Gilbert
