New German Diptera Website

Juergen Kappert, a Dipterists Forum member from Germany has set up a website for his local diptera.

He would appreciate some feedback.

Impressive photographs and very interesting and informative details of specimen preparation for genitalia prep and photography.

Re: New German Diptera Website

Yes very good, may be an idea to add male or female and whether tibia 1, 2 etc
Nice to see where you caught the flies and esp. the flowers you found them on

Re: New German Diptera Website

Our anti-cancer trajectory for Drosophila includes nectar plants but also food plants. Juergen's photography is most welcome, and who can forget the chemistry link, for example, Hegenauer, Chemotaxonomie der Pflanzen? If there is deliberate sdelf-medication in chimpanzees using Vernonia species, how much more don't we know about Diptera's choices? A translational opportunity also exists, not only with the French site mentioned in this forum, but also for Russian. Badger2's translations might be crude, but, what the heck?

'V surovom klimate boreal'noi taiga uspovaet za teplyi sezon razvit'sia tol'ko odna faza.
In the rough climate of the boreal taiga, only one stage develops in one warm season.'
