This long-legged gnat, and about 7 to 8 mm, was walking on one of the timber rails that make the wetland trails. Without fly before my eyes traveled over a foot.
As on other occasions, I have no idea identification.

Taken in Suarez Pond wetland in Motril, Granada, Spain.
Anyone know what insect is?
Thanks for your help and greetings.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
