Am I correct in saying that the flies and mosquitos which he studied are "Diptera" instead of Dipterans?Rosen643 (talk) 18:19, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

That would be pretty much like saying "Dinosauria" instead of "dinosaurs". They're both correct in this context, if the former a little old-fashioned. Diptera (not in italics unless it's a clade name) is the name of the taxon.--Earrnz (talk) 01:52, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

A short biography

A short biography of Hennig recently appeared in Nature; it could be used as a citation for a lot of details in this article! -- Gaurav (talk) 07:14, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
