New Publications and New Projects on Neotropical Diptera

The second volume of the Manual of Central American Diptera has recently been published, with several chapters by Lyman personnel. Stéphanie Boucher contributed the chapter on Agromyzidae and Terry Wheeler wrote five family chapters in Volume 2 (Camillidae, Carnidae, Chloropidae, Chyromyidae, Paraleucopidae) and co-authored the Diptera Phylogeny chapter in Volume 1 with Norm Woodley and Art Borkent. This publication by no means wraps up our work on Neotropical Agromyzidae and Chloropidae. Both Stéphanie and Terry still have multiple taxonomic projects on Central American flies in progress, and we have recently begun a collaboration on a Diptera biodiversity and ecology project in Ecuador, coordinated and largely funded by Belgian research institutions and funding agencies.
