Good afternoon,

today two pictures of Tipulidae with a request for confirmation or correction. My guess it is Nephrotoma cornicina ♀.

Found in May 2021, habitat sandy dry grassland at the edge of a sandy pine forest in southwest Germany.

Thanks for your help.

I think this is N. submaculosa, but I am no expert.

Thanks Jan. It is quite possible. Apparently there are several very similar species. Let's wait and see, maybe someone else has an idea.

many greetings

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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