February 18th - Global Sciapodinae, #4: Oriental Region Cont'd

Heyo, fly folk!

Last week was the Super Bowl, so we decided to postpone our fourth meeting on these flies: tomorrow we will discuss the Oriental genera in some more detail and focus on some common species. I will also introduce the species groups of Chrysosoma.

Date & Time: 8 PM EST on Sunday, February 18th.

February 4th - Global Sciapodinae, #3: Americas and Oriental Region

Heyo, fly folk!

For our third installment in this series, we will discuss the genera in the Oriental Region, which we have not looked at previously. We will then split into those who want to continue practicing on the American genera, which are simpler, and those who would like a challenge and wish to try their hand at the Oriental observations.

Date & Time: 8 PM EST on Sunday, February 4th.

January 28th - Global Sciapodinae, #2: Americas Cont'd

Heyo, fly folk!

Continuing with what we started last week: We will take a minute at the beginning to review the American genera of Sciapodinae, and then proceed to identification while those interested in the more difficult Australasian and Oriental genera will have some resources distributed.

Date & Time: 8 PM EST on Sunday, January 28st.

January 21st - Global Sciapodinae, #1: New World

Heyo, fly folk!

Since I have trouble deciding what to do each week, and I currently have a strong interest in the Australasian Sciapodinae (Dolichopodidae), we're going to spend a few weeks looking at and working to identify the various regional fauna of this subfamily. We will start with the New World, focusing on species identification in the Nearctic and genus ID in the Neotropic.

Date & Time: 8 PM EST on Sunday, January 21st.

January 14th - Bibionidae #3

Heyo, fly folk!

This will be our last week for now working on Bibionidae. This meeting will not have very much review, if at all, in the beginning, and we will work mainly on identifying observations stuck at family to genus or species. Next week we'll switch it up!

Date & Time: 8 PM EST on Sunday, January 14th.

January 7th - Bibionidae cont'd

Heyo, fly folk!

We're continuing with Bibionidae this week, with an unfortunate caveat: Michael may or may not be able to join us, so I (Zach) will be 'leading' the meeting. As I don't know the Bibionidae that well, we will have to struggle together, but don't fret, because we have Even's great guide and Michael's voice in our heads from last week. Hope to see you there!

December 31st - Bibionidae Review

Heyo, fly folk!

Taking a step back in time today! This week we'll be shifting focus temporarily (for maybe a few weeks) to Bibionidae, led by @mabuva2021. He'll start with a review of the genera, which we learned about in February, and then discuss some common species in the US and Canada.

Date & Time: 8 PM EST on Sunday, December 31st.
