With over 7,000 species the order Diptera is the largest in the UK. The enormous range of habitats, appearances, biology, behaviours and ease of identification has resulted in the development of numerous groups to study and record them. In an effort to share experiences and provide mutual support, the Dipterists Forum was formed and now conducts field meetings & workshops and publishes a biannual Bulletin and a journal, Dipterists Digest. Within this umbrella organisation are up to 25 different Study Groups and Recording Schemes. Some operate more or less independently, others under the Dipterists Forum banner and all have the continued support of BRC. A full list of these may be found on our website.
The published resources listed below are managed directly by Dipterists Forum.
