Notes are given on the life of Charles De Geer ( 1720-1778), on the history of his insect collection, and on some nomenclatural aspects of his work. The 10 species he described into the present families Fanniidae, Anthomyiidae and Muscidae are listed, their typematerial and identities discussed, and iectotypes designated where appropriate. 4 new synonyms are established: Fannia scalaris (Fabricius, 1794) (syn: minordomestica De Geer, 1776), Pegomya steini Hendel, 1925 (syn: fungorum De Geer, 1776, preocc.), Pegomya testacea (De Geer, 1776) (syn: silacea Meigen, 1830), and Lucilia caesar (Linnaeus, 1758) (syn: viridicaerulea De Geer, 1776).
