Eudorylas

I struggling a bit with a small Pipunculid I found recently. Does any one have a more usable and up to date key to British Eudorylas than the one in Coe (1966)?

I am thinking of buying Kehlmaier (2005) eventually (when my book budget allows) is this overkill for just UK species?

Re: Eudorylas

If you intend doing Pips seriously then it is well worth getting a copy of Kehlmaier (2005). If not then you can send specimens to me for identification. Mike Ackland produced keys to Eudorylas which were distributed with forum bulletin. There will probably be copies at Dinton. While it has been superceeded by Kehlmaier (2005) (taxonomy outdated)it is still useful and the keys easier to use.

Re: Eudorylas

Many thanks.

What I think would be the best learning opportunity, would be if I had a go first, and if you could confirm my id, or more likely point out where I went wrong? if this is ok by you?

Do you know what edition those keys were in, and if they are available still?
