EDITORS COMMENTS
This image is taken from Curtis's British Entomology, Plate 78, featuring the Diptera species, Tabanus alpinus, also known as Atylotus fulvus or the Alpine Breeze-fly or Clegg. The fly is depicted in intricate detail, with its long legs and distinctive striped abdomen, resting on the petals of Matricaria recutita, commonly known as Chamomile Feverfew. The plant, native to Europe and Asia, is identified by its daisy-like white flowers and feathery leaves. This entomological plate is a testament to the meticulous work of John Curtis, FLS, who dedicated his career to documenting the diverse insect life of Britain during the 1820s and 1830s. The plate is part of a larger series of works, showcasing the vast array of insects that populated the British Isles during the 19th century. The Diptera order, which includes flies, is one of the largest orders of insects, and Tabanus alpinus is just one of the many fascinating species that can be found within it. The fly is an important pollinator, and its presence on the Chamomile Feverfew plant highlights the vital role that insects play in the ecosystem. This beautiful and historically significant print is a must-have for any entomology or natural history enthusiast, offering a glimpse into the rich biodiversity of Britain during the 19th century. The intricate detail and exquisite craftsmanship of the plate make it a stunning addition to any collection, and a reminder of the beauty and complexity of the natural world.
