Episode 28: Y’all Heard of the Picture-Winged Flies (Ulidiidae)?

This week's episode is an exploration of the modest but fascinating family Ulidiidae, the "picture-winged flies." Tangents include fly phylogenies (fly-logeny), sperm and the distribution thereof, and whether there's any truly correct way to pronounce scientific names. 

A transcript of the episode is available at our website here: https://asabpodcast.com/2021/05/06/episode-28/

This episode follows the first publication out of Charles's MS thesis, "An illustrated identification key to the genera of Ulidiidae (Diptera: Tephritoidea) of the United States and Canada," published in the Canadian Journal of Arthropod Identification here: https://cjai.biologicalsurvey.ca/w_45/w_45.html

Charles is on Twitter @cockroacharles, and Tessa @spacermase
