Savage, J.: Revision of the genus Thricops Rondani (Diptera: Muscidae). 2003, 143 pp. SEK 280.

The world fauna of the genus Thricops Rondani is revised. Forty-four valid species and two subspecies are recognized in the present study. All species are described and genitalic illustrations given for both sexes. Six new species are described, four from the Palaearctic realm (T. angelorum sp. n., T. nigriabdominalis sp. n., T. ponti sp. n., T. vaderi sp. n.) and two from the Nearctic realm (T. aduncus sp. n., T. dianae sp. n.). The oriental species T. ilamensis Shinonaga and the Palaearctic species Azelia fengi Fan are excluded from the genus and the Nearctic T. medius (Stein) is synonymized with T. villicrus (Coquillett). Keys for each sex are given, and knowledge on the biology of most species is summarized.

Almquist, Sven, The Swedish Araneae. Part 1. The families Atypidae to Hahniidae (Linyphiidae excluded). 284 pp. 2005. SEK 400.

Part 1 describes 18 families — 199 species. Each of them is illustrated with one plate of figures (each with 4–9 figures) making a total of about 1,300 figures. The vast majority of them are drawn by the author from living specimens showing both the habitus of the species and details important for the determination of the species.

The first chapter gives a brief, illustrated, description of spider morphology together with a complete list of all Swedish spider taxa, an explanation of abbreviations used in the illustrations and of the distributions maps that accompanies all the species.

Each family, subfamily, species-group and genus is diagnosed and a key with ample references to illustrations is given.
For each species a description of male and female morphology and colors is given together with relevant measurements.
Under the heading “Distribution” the known distribution of the species is given, (like Palaearctic, Scandinavia, Britain etc.) For Sweden the distribution is mapped and given as a list of land-scapes. In “Habitat” information on the kind of biotopes in which the species lives, is found, while “Biology”
describes mating behaviour, feeding and season of appearance for adults and spiderlings in Sweden.

Almquist, Sven, The Swedish Araneae. Part 2. The families Dictynidae to Salticidae. 2006. 320 pp. SEK 450.

The second volume of Swedish spiders is a direct continuation of the first one. The second volume also contains the complete list of references and the list of all species.

Fjellberg, Arne: Icelandic Collembola, revised checklist and general comments. (pp. 45–60).

Kjaerandsen, J., Kurina, O. & Olafsson, E.: The fungus gnats of Iceland (Diptera, Keroplatidae & Mycetophiliodae). (pp. 61–96).

Kjaerandsen, J., Hedmark, Kj., Kurina, O., Polevoi, A., Økland, Bj. & Götmark, F.: Annotated checklist of fungus gnats from Sweden. (Diptera: Bolitophilidae, Diadocidiidae, Ditomyiidae, Keraplatidae & Mycetophilidae). 128 pp., 2007 SEK 200

The checklist is the result from literature research as well as treatment of a considerable determined and undetermined material from Swedish museum collections and recent material from several sources. The work also includes a revision of the J. W. Zetterstedt collection. 137 species in this checklist are reported for the first time from Sweden, 36 species considered as new to science are mentioned; in all 758 species of 83 genera are listed.
