ACKLAND, David Michael

Well known Dipterist but his interest as a teenager was with ants which led to a meeting with Horace Donisthorpe and to his only publication to mention beetles Dorcus parallelipipedus (L.) and ant’s nest in the same tree’, Ent.mon.Mag., 79, 1943, 251. There is an obituary including bibliography and photograph in the same periodical, 157, 2021, 243-247.
