yesterday I found this midge in a small box with a piece of rotten dead wood which I brought with larvae from a forest some weeks ago.
Is it a Neolimonia dumetorum?

Hi Eric, thank you for confirmation. I used the same site.
Today I wanted to take some better photos, but the midge escaped and vanished.
Best regards,
