The dataset includes the biodata of the syrphid specimens held in the fund collections of the I.I. Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology NAS of Ukraine. Most of the specimens were collected by A. Prokhorov in Ukraine from 2015 to now and are kept pinned. Syrphidae collection is formed from the material collected during a number of expeditions and excursions in various natural habitat types of most geographic and administrative regions of Ukraine.

Данные проекта

The I.I. Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology collection fund contains 711 collections and about 7 million storage units with 1379 holotypes. The entomological part makes up 70 % of the fund. The majority of the specimens were collected on the territory of modern Ukraine and the former Soviet Union, but in some collections, specimens from all over the world are presented. Most collections were prepared during the XX century and presented by specimens collected from the early 1900s to the modern period. The main aim of the project is to mobilize the biodata of the most significant entomological collections from Hymenoptera, Diptera, Lepidoptera and Coleoptera orders.

Финансирование The contract's total financial framework follows the applied project financing and will be financed from UiO-NHM's project budget for BioDATA (project number Biodata Cepa-LT-2017/10049, UiO project number 101063).
Описание района исследования The study area focuses on the biodata mobilization of preserved specimens from fund collections of I.I. Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology NAS of Ukraine. The taxonomic range covers 3 orders and 22 insect families: Lepidoptera (Tortricidae), Diptera (Sciaridae, Syrphidae), and Hymenoptera (Crabronidae, Sphecidae, Scoliidae, Pompilidae, Vespidae, Chrysididae, Formicidae, Ichneumonidae, Braconidae, Cynipidae, Eurytomidae, Torymidae, Ormyridae, Pteromalidae, Aphelinidae, Eulophidae, Trichogrammatidae, Encyrtidae, Scelionidae).

Методы сбора

The material was collected in a number of expeditions and excursions carried out during the field seasons from March to October (mostly April–August). The main biotopes in which Syrphidae were collected are edges of mixed or deciduous forests, floodplain forests or meadow, marshes, orchards, roadsides. The flies were caught mainly by the standard method using an entomological net or sometimes exhauster. For identification of unknown and doubtful species, specimens were studied with MBS-9. Species identification was carried out using the general identification keys published in the works of Speight (2017), Bartsсh (2009), Van Veen (2010), as well as identification keys for individual genera in the works of various specialists. All material is kept in the funds of I.I. Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology NAS of Ukraine, Kyiv (SIZK) as a separate Syrphidae collection.

Охват исследования The dataset contains the biodata of Syrphidae collection is kept in the funds of I. I. Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology NAS of Ukraine (SIZK_Syrphidae). The collection consists of two parts: the first contains the pinned and mounted specimens, and this collection is exemplary in our funds; in the second part of the collection there are only pinned specimens (not mounted), and this is a comparative material necessary for identifying species. As a rule, with the help of a dissecting needle with a hook at the end, terminalia are advanced in males. In many cases this makes it easier to identify questionable species. Syrphidae collection of SIZK covers almost the whole territory of Ukraine (there are practically no collection data from the central regions of Ukraine) and various habitat types both natural and anthropogenic.
Контроль качества One of the most important steps in Sciaridae studying is verifying of correction of specimen identification. Therefore, all newly recorded species in Ukraine or new species in our collection need to be compared with the type specimen or at least the voucher specimen whose identification is undoubted. Also, we were using the OpenRefine (https://openrefine.org/) for checking the data quality and GBIF species matching tool (https://www.gbif.org/tools/species-lookup) for the taxonomic checking opensource software.
