Collecting trips

Some dipterists attending ICD9 will wish to arrange their own private collecting trips before or after the Congress to sample specimens and undertake research and ICD9 has already been contact by a number of delegates with the intention to do so (both for fieldwork in Namibia and South Africa).

In order to assist interested dipterists to get together and arrange joint collecting expeditions in Namibia and elsewhere, ICD9 invites those interested to submit their names, e-mail addresses and locations they wish to visit, so we can post details below. Please send these details to

All delegates who wish to collect in Namibia should refer to our Permits page for further details.

Those wishing to collect in South Africa should refer to the SANBI website for details of how to apply for permits.
