Paper on Pherbellia albovaria, the snail-killing fly is out

In this post and also in this post, I wrote about a dead fly I had found in a container of land snail shells. The fly was eventually identified as Pherbellia albovaria (Diptera: Sciomyzidae). The larvae of sciomyzids are snail predators.

A note I wrote about that fly just came out in issue #18 of Triton. You may download a pdf copy from here.

Triton is the journal of the Israel Malacological Society. It is published twice a year, usually around March and October. More information is available here.
