This is the fourth 'empidid' volume of the series 'Fauna entomologica scandinavica', covering the Scandinavian species of what is undoubtedly the most difficult Palaearctic genus of the family Empididae, the genus Hilara Meigen, 1822. The format of the present volume is the same as in the preceding three volumes. The General part refers only briefly to the morphology of the adults, and is followed by sections on the Classification, Life history (covering feeding habits, epigamic behaviour, phenology), and a section on Zoogeography. All these sections are arranged as in the preceding empidid volumes, including the zoogeography section in which the Scandinavian species are classified into the usual six distributional groups. The main part is the systematic treatment, which also follows the arrangement of the preceding empidid volumes. The 'Key to Fennoscandian species' includes several additional species which do not receive a separate treatment in the following systematic part, but they are all given a clear diagnosis in the discussion of the most closely related Scandinavian species. In all, 90 species of Hilara are treated in the present volume, of which 72 have been found to occur in Denmark and Fennoscandia. These further 18 species are included, as they may well occur within the area covered by this series although they have not yet been found there.

About the Author:

Milan Chvala, born in Prague in 1936 and graduated in 1960 at the Faculty of Science of the Charles University in Prague in zoology and entomology. Lecturing entomology at the Faculty of Science in Prague since 1965 and in 1989 awarded the DrSc degree in biology. Since 1991 vice-dean of the Faculty of Science of the Charles University. Corresponding member of the Entomological Society in Helsinki (1984), Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society of London (1991) and since 1986 vice-chairman of the Council for International Congresses of Dipterology. He has published more than 150 scientific papers in dipterology including several monographs and books, for instance volumes 3 (1975) and 12 (1983) of the Fauna Entomologica Scandinavica, "The Horse Flies of Europe" (Copenhagen 1972) or (together with J. Zahradnik) "Insects: A Comprehensive Illustrated Guide to Insects of Britain and Europe" (Hamlyn, London 1989).

Review:

'"...a very welcome update of the monographic treatment of the genus by J.E. Collin in British Flies volume 6 (1961). Chvalas contacts with many dipterists from over Europe enabled him to include the most accurate and inclusive information on "Hilara "to date. In combination with Chvala's conscientious working method this resulted in a major and enduring contribution to the knowledge of European dipterology."' Herman de Jong, "Tijdschrift voor Entomologie", 2006. '"Ein gelungenes Bestimmungswerk fur diese Gattung, das in keiner zoologischen Bibliothek und bei keinem europaischen Dipterologen fehlen sollte." 'W. Schacht, "Entomofauna", 2006."
