About this book

This Handbook is the first full review of the British Lonchaeidae (Diptera) since Collin (1953). Since then the number of species recognised as British has grown from 28 to 46. This Handbook provides a revised checklist, fully illustrated keys for genera and species, as well as a key to known puparia.

The species notes provide additional taxonomic notes, review the British and European distribution of each species and, where available, give detailed ecological information.
