The Drosophilidae (Diptera) of Fennoscandia and Denmark: replacing three misprinted plates


Bächli, Gerhard; Vilela, Carlos R (2019). The Drosophilidae (Diptera) of Fennoscandia and Denmark: replacing three misprinted plates. Alpine Entomology, 3:137-140.

Abstract

Three out of the 80 plates of fine line drawings of male terminalia in the book entitled The Drosophilidae (Diptera) of Fennoscandia and Denmark, published by Brill Leiden were misprinted. Here these three plates have been reprinted in the manner that they should have been published originally and provide an accurate representation of the complex male terminalia of Amiota subtusradiata Leucophenga quinquemaculata and Phortica variegata. Male terminalia republishing corrigenda

In 2004, the authors published a book in the Fauna Entomologica Scandinavica series (Volume 39), entitled The Drosophilidae (Diptera) of Fennoscandia and Denmark (Bächli et al. 2004). Unfortunately, three of the plates with fine line drawings were misprinted. These plates displayed the complex male terminalia of Amiota subtusradiata Duda, 1934 (p. 44, Figs 98–101), Leucophenga quinquemaculata Strobl, 1893 (p. 68, Figs 148–151), and Phortica variegata (Fallén, 1823) (p. 75, Figs 164–167), which display a boreo-montane distribution throughout central Europe. In 2007, photomicrographs of the complex male terminalia of these species were published (Bächli and Vilela 2007); however, one of the photomicrographs was misprinted, and an erratum was published soon after (Bächli and Vilela 2009).

Along the same lines, The Drosophilidae (Diptera) of Fennoscandia and Denmark is widely used and cited by Drosophilidae experts, mainly taxonomists, who rely on accurate illustrations to properly identify the specimens. Therefore, it was decided to republish these plates (including the captions), with permission from Brill Publishers, aiming to help taxonomists in the species identification process.
