Hi everyone,

For this Ceratopogonidae, the habitus and the wings shorter than the abdomen lead me to a Forcipomyia. Do you think it is feasible to go further (maybe the yellow anepisternum can help)?

Thank you!

Possibly Forcipomyia brevipennis.

Thank you John! What would be the criteria that could strengthen this hypothesis?

I don't know. Forcipomyia brevipennis is a common Holarctic species with male thorax shining black and otherwise with similar colors. In North America it is distinctive. Possibly Europe has similar species.
