Book summary

A detailed account of the taxonomy, biology and distribution of the European species of Siphonini, this volume presents an analysis and proposal on the systematic position of the Siphonini, together with a key to larger taxonomic entities of Tachinidae. The generic classification is also critically emphasized, and a separate chapter summarizes aspects of the group's natural history: life-cycles, mating behaviour, oviposition strategies etc. The taxonomic section of the text contains identification keys to genera and species, and for each species a diagnosis, description and accounts of the nomenclature, biology and distribution is given. A separate catalogue details the provincial distribution of the 47 species occurring in Fennoscandia and Denmark. [via]
