I found this cranefly yesterday on the railing of a bridge over a small river in a park in Germany, Saxony (altitude 350 m).
I think it might be Tipula (Yamatotipula) lateralis. Another possibility would be T. montium. Is a species ID possible?

Hello Marion,

yes, I would say lateralis.

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