SYRPHIDS

At the moment Mr. George and I are trying to assemble records of these for a continuation of the Diptera of Suffolk and should be grateful to receive comments relating to any of the 250 species, but particulary those concerning the rarer or most recently described species.

PHORIDAE (DIPTERA) NEW TO THE SUFFOLK LIST by

L.

PARMENTER

IT is curious that Claude Morley paid little attention to the Phoridae. It is one of the families which had secured the notice of a specialist, Dr. J. H. Wood at the start of the Century. Wood's Tables in the Ent. Mon. Mag. appeared in 1906 - 1914, when Morley was still collecting diptera. More recently, Mr. C. N. Colyer has specialised in the family and has kindly examined my Suffolk captures, some of them taken when he has joined Messrs. J. E. Collin, C. O. Hammond and myself on visits made to the county. These specimens appear to include 19 additions to the county list. (See 1957, A. Aston, " The Diptera of Suffolk— Phoridae ". Trans. Suffolk Nat. Soc. X : 223-7.) Aneurina thoracica Mg.
