Here is a hypopygium of a male Tipula sp. from Eastern Serbia, Grza springs, near Paraćin.
The photos were taken of a live specimen, without catching it, on 19th of April 2014.
Habitat is a mixed oak and hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) forest, with also some beech. Soil layer is mostly thin, on limestone.

My experience and identification literature (especially regional) on Tipulidae is pretty scarce, so any help or directions on this specimen would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Can anyone at least narrow it down to 3-4 species or a subgenus?

Very interesting and good pictures.
Looks little like Tipula (Lunatipula) fascipennis but not that I think.

Thank you very much for your reply, evi.

Maybe these can help, even though out of focus and a bit blurry.
But on the first one you can see that one of the abd. sternites is expanded (?), with a tuft of hairs on the tip (it was wet, so they're stuck close together). I can't see that in T. (Lunatipula) fascipenis. Nor I have found anything similar among the photos and illustrations of hypopygium available here http://nlbif.eti.... for the species recorded in Serbia.

Hi Sasha

I checked more. I think Tipula (Lunatipula) clio is good candidate.

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

15.09.19 20:41
Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

11.09.19 13:15
I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

16.07.19 13:31
Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
