September 11 - !!!Asemosyrphus/creation of a dichotomous key

We're happy to announce another online meeting! This one I think you all will enjoy a lot. Here are the details:

A couple of weeks ago, I examined specimens of Asemosyrphus at the National Museum of Natural History fly collection and determined new consistent characters that I could use to make a visual key to the Asemosyrphus of the Americas. Since I already have the characters, a major part of the key-making process is done, and all that is left is to actually create it. So, this Sunday I will be creating this key live so that all of you can learn the process and also learn how to identify these flies at the same time!

Just as a reminder: our meetings are entirely informal, and everyone is invited to speak their minds and ask questions to the group. Participation is key to learning!

Please leave a comment either to let us know if you're planning to come or to subscribe to be notified of future events! Questions are also welcome.

The Zoom meeting will open at 8 PM EDT on Sunday the 11th.

Is this what you were working on the day I was there? Cool stuff!

No, @sirlycosid, at that point I was just identifying Chris Thompson's undet. Syrphidae. On my last day (Friday, Aug 26th), after finishing up a drawer, I spent the rest of the day working on personal projects, which I hadn't taken much time to do before then.

I filled in quite some information in my Sciapodinae notes document (unpublished), confirmed/added some characters for the Xylophagidae notes, and then looked at the Asemosyrphus.
