About the scheme

The Soldierflies and Allies Recording Scheme collates biological records for 11 related Diptera families, using the information to promote enjoyment, study and conservation of the species and their habitats. It was formerly known as the Larger Brachycera Recording Scheme.

This recording scheme falls under the umbrella of Dipterists Forum. The scheme is coordinated by Martin Harvey and Alex Dye with help from others in Dipterists Forum. Previous scheme organisers were Tony Irwin, Martin Drake and Simon Hayhow.
