 The FlyBase file of drosophilid species names has been updated. There
 follows a brief description of this file.

 flybase/miscellany/species.txt  is  an  alphabetical  list  of  "valid"
 taxa in the family Drosophilidae. This file has been generated from
 the  Systematic  Catalogue  on  Drosophilidae  and  Allied  Families
 written  and  maintained  by  Dr.  G.  Baechli,  Zoologisches  Museum,
 University of Zurich. We thank Dr. Baechli for his help. The catalog
 includes 3273 "valid" species. 

 The  species  are  listed  in  alphabetical  order,  each  species  being
 represented as:

 Genus  (Subgenus)  species_name  Author,  date:page_number  (genus  or
 name of original description)
 eg:    Drosophila (Sophophora) melanogaster Meigen, 1830:85 (Drosophila)

 Note that this catalog uses the revised higher level nomenclature
 proposed  by  David  Grimaldi  (Grimaldi,  D.A.  1990.  A  phylogenetic,
 revised  classification  of  genera  in  the  Drosophilidae  (Diptera).
 Bull.  Amer.  Mus.  Nat.  Hist.  197:1-139).  This  raises  many  of  the
 subgenera    of   Drosophila,     e.g.   Drosophila    (Hirtodrosophila),
 Drosophila    (Scaptodrosophila)    to   the   level   of   genera,    i.e.
 Hirtodrosophila, Scaptodrosophila.
