Is it possible to say which Nematocera bit Rana esculenta?

As far as I know and looking at the picture I could say these are Simuliidae or Ceratopogonidae. But they look more like Simuliidae. Maybe someone will also say his/her opinion.

With these relatively long antennae, they cannot be Simuliidae, so I assume they are Ceratopogonidae.

By the way, I found in Bey-Bienko that frog blood is specialisation of Forcipomyia velox, of Ceratopogonidae.

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
