Comparing my Chironimidae (2.6 mm) with several photos on the internet, it looks like Polypedilum.
But I am sure there must be more genera with this aspect. Grin

On the wall of my balcony. In Minas de Riotinto, SW Spain.

Is it possible to assign a genus?


Thanks!
André

In tribe Chironomini, genus Zavreliella also has brown species with brown wing spots. It can be distinguished by the enlarged, hairy fore femora.
