Insects, Diptera

Daniel WhitmoreDuncan SivellErica McAlister, Nigel Wyatt

Summary

I am a curator of Diptera specialising in Calyptrata and Aschiza and also assist with research on Diptera of forensic and veterinary importance. My main area of interest is in the identification and taxonomy of these groups, especially Calliphoridae, Tachinidae, Muscidae and Syrphidae, and also the identification of dipterous larvae, especially those associated with carrion or causing myiasis.
