Hello,
I found this little insect at the beginning of August. It was on a mint leaf by a lake in Villeneuve d'Ascq (North of France).
I think it belongs to the Chironomidae family and, on LMDI site, I am suggested Tanypus genus for this insect. Do you think it can actually be this genus ? And can or not a species be considered ?
Thanks in advance.
Dominique

Thank you very much, John, for your quick reply. I am happy to know the species of the insect in addition to its genus.
Best regards,
Dominique

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
