Dear all,
a few days ago I found this Tipulid in a meadow on Hönggerberg in Zurich, Switzerland. Could it be Tipula vernalis?
Thank you in advance!
Best, Adrian

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
