SUFFOLK DIPTERA CHECKLIST

THE DIPTERA OF SUFFOLK PETER VINCENT Introduction As diptera recorder for Suffolk I find it frustrating that there is no up to date and comprehensive checklist of the flies of Suffolk. My intention, therefore, is over a period of time to compile, as far as possible, a complete a checklist of the diptera of Suffolk. This is a monumental task, the British Isles list of diptera currently (August 2018) runs to some 7171 species (of which 41 are recorded from Ireland only) (Chandler, 2018), a good proportion of which are likely to occur or have occurred in Suffolk. The first checklist of Suffolk Diptera was published by C. Morley and E. A. Atmore in the 1915 Transactions of the Norfolk and Norwich Naturalists’ Society (TNNS) (Morley and Atmore, 1915). This enumerated the number of species known to occur in Suffolk as 1623. A supplement to Morley and Atmore’s list in the 1932 TNNS by B. Harwood raised the total to 1887 (Harwood, 1932). In 1945 Morley started an indepth review of the Suffolk diptera as known at the time, including, a species list, records of each and notes on some of the rarer species including some habitat information. From then on Morley published details of a family or a tranche of families annually in the Transactions of the Suffolk Naturalists’ Society (TSNS), until his death in 1951, by which time he had reached the Asilidae. A. E. Aston with collaborators D. Walker and later W.S. George carried on the series from 1954 until the final part, Syrphiidae, was published in 1960. (George & Aston, 1960). Together Morley, Aston and George had made their way through about two thirds of the potential Suffolk diptera, but probably less of the species commonly recorded. What remained was the whole of the Acalyptratae and Calyptratae, some 60 families, containing some of the more familiar and popular groups. As it stands at present, the current Suffolk diptera checklist comprises of the database of submitted diptera records held by the Suffolk Biodiversity Information Centre (SBIS), to which can be added records available from the National Biodiversity Network (NBN). This is far from complete, however, further diptera records from Suffolk are held by the various Dipterists Forum national recording schemes and study groups, and in publications and journals such as the TSNS and the Dipterists Digest. There are unpublished records held by individual collectors. I intend to exploit all these resources to make the checklist as complete as possible. Although for the time being this remains a paper exercise, specimens do exist in museums and other collections, including Morley’s own collection in the Ipswich Museum that could be used to extract more records and also to check on the validity of existing records. The records that form this checklist are from the Watsonian vice-counties of East (v.c. 25) and West (v.c. 26) Suffolk which is of greater extent than the modern administrative county boundaries. Diptera are not well recorded in Suffolk, with few records of even quite common species. Therefore, although records are in the main collected at monad (O.S.1km square) or greater accuracy, in order to assess the

relative abundance and distribution of a diptera species the hectad (O.S.10km square) is used as the base recording unit. Suffolk comprises of 54 hectads or part hectads. In this checklist of Suffolk Diptera the arrangement of families follows that set out in Chandler (1998) and updates (Dipterists Forum, 2018). The classification of British diptera starts with the Lower Diptera (Nematocera) followed by the Brachycera. Within families, all taxa are listed alphabetically. Altogether there are at present 106 families of diptera recognised within the British fauna. The dynamic nature of checklists, with the need to continuously be able to compile updates (additional species, taxonomic changes, synonymizations, and deleted species), means it is logical to publish the whole list, including all updates, online. So once a family or group of families has been reviewed, the checklist will be published first in the TSNS and then placed on the Suffolk Naturalists’ Society website, where it will be easier to make adjustments to the list. Part One: Tipulidae, Cylindrotomidae, Pediciidae, Limoniidae The checklist commences with the first infraorder of the Lower Diptera the Tipulomorpha. The Tipulomorpha contains one superfamily Tipuloidea, which itself contains four families, Tipulidae, Cylindrotomidae, Pediciidae and Limoniidae. Together these four families are usually referred to as craneflies. As a group, craneflies are readily recognised by their slender bodies and long feeble legs. Amongst dipterists they are one of the most popular and accessible taxa of the Lower Diptera. They have been widely collected in Suffolk from Verrall onwards. The Tipulidae are generally the largest in size of the superfamily and includes Britain’s fly with the greatest wingspan Tipula maxima Poda, 1761. There are 87 species on the British list, with 55 from Suffolk. The Cylindrotomidae are feeble craneflies with the abdomen looking too long for the wings; there are 4 species on the British list 3 of which are found in Suffolk. Formerly included with the Tipulidae, the Pediciidae are unique amongst the craneflies in having hairy eyes. Most species occur by fast flowing streams and rivers, therefore likely accounting for Suffolk’s impoverished Pediciidae fauna of only 6 from a British total of 20. By far the largest family of the Tipulidae is the Limoniidae; they vary greatly in appearance and are usually of moderate size. Limoniines usually hold the wings along the back of the body, whereas other tipulids usually hold them out at right angles. There are 222 British species of which 119 have been recorded from Suffolk. The layout of the checklist is that for each family the first division is by genus and then species in alphabetical order. Though, the Limoniidae are at first divided into three subfamilies and it is also customary for the Tipulidae, Pediciidae and Limoniidae to be divided at subgenus level as well. For every individual species the species name (in bold type) is followed by the authority, then details of the first record of that species from Suffolk – place, date (to as much accuracy as possible) and recorder (where known). To give an indication of the distribution and the abundance of each species, this is followed by a list of all the hectads each species has occurred and the number of known records (in square brackets). A few records have been italicised; these records whether for, rarity, location, habitat or date are considered doubtful.
