Hello !
A friend of mine got this, which is I suppose is an Acroceridae, and I though it would be an Ogcodes sp. but cannot find any further identification.
What do you think ?

August 2018, Vierzon (center of france)

Thanks !

Yes, that is an Ogcodes. Wing looks slightly smoky, in which case it is likely fumipennis, which is a little kniwn species.

Hello !
Thanks for your answer Smile I can't find any data or info about this specie (though there is an Acrocera fumipennis). Do you have any documentation about it please?

Thanks a lot ! I looked on gbif, google scholar and species list and could'nt find this specie listed which is why I was kinda lost.

I'll definitively get this (and the Veldgids Roofvliegen Shock) book as soon as possible, I didn't know about those ! Thanks a lot Grin

Also my friend told me he got another one in another site, but same habitat (oak canopy), is it its knwon habitat ?

You are welcome. If the legs are yelliw but the wing is clear, it is O. pallipes. Should be more common.
