Description This Manual of Central European Muscidae summarizes all important data on the morphology, taxonomy and distribution of the regional species from the period 1965–2014 (i.e. since publication of the celebrated monograph on the Palaearctic species of this family by Hennig in 1955–1964). The introductory part includes the characteristics of the family and a review of basic systematic studies. Taxonomic and faunistic data from Central Europe (Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland, Austria and Hungary) are reviewed up to the present. Additional chapters deal with current knowledge of the morphology, development, biology and classification. The identification keys enable the families of the Calyptrata and the various categories of Central European Muscidae (subfamilies, genera and species) to be identified. In the review of species, all 406 regional species are discussed, with information on their distinguishing characters, their known geographical distribution, and the adult flight period. The morphological terms used in the keys and the species characteristics are illustrated by 933 figures on 54 plates. Special attention is given to figures of the male and female terminalia as the most important criteria of species-specificity. Distribution data on the Central European species are given in an extensive table which includes their distribution country by country, their biogeographical classification, and their geographical distribution outside Europe
