—Linnaeus described 37 species of flower flies (Diptera: Syrphidae). His collection was studied, and the current status of all his flower fly names is given. Six new synonyms are established (Scaeva annulipes Zetterstedt = Eriozona erratica (Linnaeus), Musca citrofasciata DeGeer = Xanthogramma /estiva (Linnaeus), Xylota curvipes Loew = Chalcosyrphus femoratus (Linnaeus), Chrysogaster chalybeata Meigen = Chrysogaster cemiteriorum (Linnaeus), Musca nemorum Linnaeus = Eristalis arbustorum… 

A Taxonomic Account of Hover Flies (Insecta: Diptera: Syrphidae) with 4 New Records from Cold Dry Zones of Himachal Pradesh, India

TLDR
Eighteen (18) species of hover flies under 14 genera and 2 subfamilies has been reported from the Cold dry zone of Himachal Pradesh which includes Kinnaur, Lahul & Spiti and Pangi range of Chamba districs.

DIVERSITY OF HOVER FLIES (INSECTA: DIPTERA: SYRPHIDAE) WITH 3 NEW RECORDS FROM SHIVALIK HILL ZONE OF HIMACHAL PRADESH, INDIA

TLDR
The present study is imperious at this juncture to explore the present status of syrphid fauna prevalent in this important high hill zone ecosystem, not only to provide a baseline data for future entomo faunal studies but also to discuss the potential role of hoverflies as pollinator in this ecosystem.

Revision of the Eristalis flower flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) of the Americas South of the United States

TLDR
The Eristalis bellardi Jaennicke and persa Williston are described and all species redescribed.

A TAXONOMIC ACCOUNT OF HOVER FLIES (INSECTA: DIPTERA: SYRPHIDAE) WITH 2 NEW RECORDS FROM MID HILL ZONE OF HIMACHAL PRADESH, INDIA

TLDR
38 species of hover flies under 22 genera and 2 subfamilies has been reported from the Mid hill zone of Himachal Pradesh which includes a long stretch of elevational range varying from 651 to 1800 meters.

Microdon rhenanus and Microdon eggeri var. major (Diptera, Syrphidae) revisited

TLDR
In the light of the description of Microdon myrmicae Schönrogge et al. 2002, a sibling species of M. mutabilis (Linnaeus, 1758) only separable on features of the developmental stages, Microdon rhenanus and Microdon eggeri var.

The Linnaean species of the family Tephritidae (Insecta: Diptera).

TLDR
The Linnaean Collection was examined; a syntypes of Tephritis hyoscyami and a possible syntype of Urophora solstitialis were identified and specimens illustrated by Aldrovandi and de Reaumur are designated as lectotypes.

Phylogeny of Chrysotoxum species (Diptera: Syrphidae) inferred from morphological and molecular characters

TLDR
The monophyly of the festivum group derived from morphological data was rejected by a phylogenetic test performed on combined molecular data set, and the diagnostic value of some morphological characters commonly used to identify Chrysotoxum species is questioned.

Generic revision and species classification of the Microdontinae (Diptera, Syrphidae)

TLDR
A new generic classification of the Microdontinae is introduced, relying partly on the results of phylogenetic analyses of morphological and molecular data as published in other papers, and partly on examination of primary type specimens of 347 taxa, plus additional material, and original descriptions.

Taxonomy of Chrysotoxum festivum Linnaeus, 1758 (Diptera: Syrphidae) - an integrative approach

TLDR
An integrative taxonomic approach revealed two taxa within Chrysotoxum festivum (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera, Syrphidae) and showed significant distinction in geometric morphometrics of wings and surstyli, and in DNA sequence data (nuclear ITS2 sequences) between C. festivum A and C.
