In the Egle brevicornis species group, with three species in your area.

Quoting Martens and Van Erkelens (2019, https://www.resea...-1374-8297):

"This paper focuses on Egle brevicornis. Egle brevicornis resembles the very common species Egle ciliata and the hardly recorded species Egle anderssoni Michelsen, 2009. The most important characteristics to distinguish Egle brevicornis can be found in the head (in brevicornis head higher than long, parafacial parallel-sided, fronto-parafacial angle lying well behind lower parafacial margin and haustellum and palp shorter than largest diameter of the eye) and the male genitalia (MICHELSEN, 2009)."

See figure 2 in that paper.

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