I found this male Limoniidae attracted to my UV illuminated sheet. Very pale and small. Quite clear and complex genital, and veination in wing looked like that of Gonomyia, but I could not find any with this type of genitals.
I collected it in my garden in the North of Netherlands.

In my regional key a wing with Gomomyia-like venation except with R2 present belongs to Gonempeda.

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
