Summary

In the second volume of the series “Diptera Stelviana”, further results
are published from the survey of the Diptera (flies and midges) in the
South Tyrol part of the Stilfserjoch National Park (Italian Alps). Five
Malaise traps were used, which were set up during the vegetative period
of 2005 along a transect from the submontane to the alpine altitudinal
zones (940 m to 2,135 m above NHN).
After the guest foreword and the editor’s foreword on the impact of the
“Nagoya Protocol” on biodiversity research, volume 2 continues with a
comprehensive historical account of dipterological research in the South
Tyrol since 1860. In the first part of this series which was published
in 2008 more than 25.000 specimens of Diptera were dealt with. In the
current volume results on a further 25,687 specimens are presented. The
identified flies and midges belong to 900 species and represent 27
Diptera families. The results are given in 29 individual reports in
which 29 international specialists have collaborated. Although there
have been dipterological investigations in the study area since 1860, an
additional 476 species have been found in the identified Diptera that
were not previously known from South Tyrol. Although the fauna of Italy
is rich and relatively well known, the present investigations in the
Stilfserjoch National Park have nevertheless added a further 109 species
as new records for Italy. In both volumes of “Diptera Stelviana” 1,248
species are recorded for the first time from South Tyrol and 357 species
for the first time from Italy.
The Diptera family Tachinidae is dealt with in particular detail in the
second volume. A review is given of the 360 species that were collected
between 1860 and 2009 in the region of the presentday province of
Bozen-South Tyrol.
Seven taxa are described as new for science: Apiloscatopse ziegleri sp.
nov. [Scatopsidae], Chrysosomopsis macrocercus sp. nov. [Tachinidae],
Dinera fuscata occidentalis ssp. nov. [Tachinidae], Lonchaea stelviana
sp. nov. [Lonchaeidae], Megaselia ziegleri sp. nov. [Phoridae], Meoneura
pohlae sp. nov. [Carnidae], and Pneumia glabella sp. nov. [Psychodidae].
Eleven maps and 16 diagrams, 137 drawings and 45 photographs of
morphological details, 20 other photographs as well as 52 photographs of
living flies in their natural habitats (altogether 282 figures)
illustrate the contributions. The second volume of the “Diptera
Stelviana” concludes with an overview of the results, a bibliography for
the General Part, summaries in Italian and German, a list of the
collaborating authors, an index of the illustrations of Diptera species,
and an index of the dipterological names.
