Limnia sp. Not sure which bit of the genitalia I am supposed to be looking at. If it is the process I have arrowed then this is L. unguicornis. Can anyone confirm/correct my ID please? UK. Bromham, Bedfordshire. 28 May 2022.

I regard described by Elberg L. paludicola as a fake/groundless species. Thus, in my opinion it is L. unguicornis without any doubts.
