This was in Iceland, where the only 3 bibionids on the list are
Bibio nigriventris, Bibio pomonae, Dilophus femoratus

But comparing to Falk's Flickr accounts (https://www.flick...177517531/)
.... this seems it must be B.longipes, which would be new for Iceland it appears.

Can anyone confirm?

Found in Kopavogur, Reykjavik, Iceland - October 2021
By the sea

B. longipes is correct!

Interesting. A first for Iceland then perhaps.
Many thanks!

It is an Holarctic species, so occurrence on Iceland makes total sense.

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
