Sorry that is probably not easy.
And I don't even got the genus list of Tipulidae in French Guiana.
Collected in bathroom in Kourou.
It is not Brachypremna, nor Lecteria and Megistocera I don't think so.

Many thanks, John. It should be Elephantomyia, because of the wings nervation.

Actually, at tip of the proboscis, there are no palps, it's the proboscis itself (a bit splitted ).
So now I guess it is a Geranomyia because of the veination

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