Introduction
Main interests: evolution, phylogeny, and taxonomy of Diptera (Tephritoidea: Tephritidae, Pyrgotidae, Ctenostylidae, Platystomatidae, Ulidiidae). Insect collection management and digitalization. Currently I am involved into taxonomic revision of Ulidiidae associated with bamboos (jointly with Damir Kovac, Elena Kameneva, and John Smit), Palaearctic Tephritidae (jointly with Severyn Korneyev, Younes El Harym, and others), and basal taxa of Pyrgotidae.

Species of the genus Tephritis usually have the wing pattern with dark rays on veins R4+5 and M connected to the preapical dark spot or to each other (often called the “apical fork).
