Geranomyia? There are at least three genera of long-beaked crane flies in the Americas.

Thank you. So that's Limoniidae for the family. Can we also be sure about the subfamily Limoniinae or even the tribe Limoniini? According to Bugguide, Geranomyia is a subgenus of Limonia. Are the other contending genera also considered subgenera of Limonia?

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