Dear Colleagues,

    I'm applying to the zoo-systematicians' circle after having exhausted all
the opportunities, bibliography of biographies and catalogues at my
disposal, and vainly consumed many hours (maybe passing very near the
answers...); anyway, this is not a solution of easiness or laziness...
Having written the Historical of the hymenopteran group I studied along
all my career, I'm stopped because I failed finding the dates of birth
and/or death of the following entomological authors (few comparatively
to the whole list).
   I'm sure that some among the Taxocomers could answer at least
one question. I suggest you send my message back with your addition(s),
without consuming time with politeness formulas, etc: I know time is
precious. Personnal thankings guaranteed by e-mail and at the end of the

Many thanks to everybody.

Paul Dessart,
Chef honoraire de la Section Insectes et Arachnomorphes
a l'Institut royal des Sciences naturelles de Belgique.
