Description

The Diptera collection contains some 300,000 specimens of more than 6000 species. The majority of specimens are pinned, but also includes of large alcohol collection of Tipulidae s.lat. In addition to 327 primary types (excluding the Phoridae), 32 are represented by syntypes and 295 species represented by secondary types. The holdings include the following important specialist collections: Phoridae (H. Schmitz, E. Beyer, E. Baumann), Tipuloidea (B. Mannheims, H. Mendl), Blephariceridae (B. Mannheims, S. Kitakami), and Sciaridae [F. Lengersdorf - on long term loan to F. Menzel (Deutsches Entomologisches Institut, Müncheberg)]. The collections are focused primarily on the western Palaearctic Region, but important parts of the collections originate also from the Oriental and Afrotropical Regions. The collection of the Cologne Zoo is also housed here (permanent loan).
