Thanks, Cranefly!! |t What do I need to get the species? I think this might be Parydra coarctata, but I would like knowing the features I need to photograph for a positive ID ;)

You are to make photo of a wing dorsally to see the short fork of vein. ;) It looks to me like P.coarctata too, but it is better to be sure completely:). And to measure size of the fly (mm)

Thanks a bunch, Cranefly! |t It will remain Parydra sp. this time ;) The only pictures I have showing venation are completely out of focus.
I didn't concentrate on this one as I was shooting a swarm of Lispe tentaculata
and this one appeared in the middle of the set. Obviosly it was mixed in the swarm of Lispe
. I didn't even know what I was shooting :D :S
But I know what I have to do now ;) Hope to get it right next time :)
