I photographed this crane fly mating on May 15, 2020 on a damp meadow in Schleswig-Holstein, Northern Germany.
I come to Tipula varipennis. Can this be confirmed or corrected based on the pictures?

Thank you and best regards,
FrankH attached the following image:

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
