This couple is remarkable in that the male and the female antennae belong to different "species" - Sympycnus pulicarius (Fallén, 1823) [=Sympycnus annulipes (Meigen, 1824)] and Sympycnus desoutteri Parent, 1925.

Roger, Igor,

I think suggesting that this is a copulation between two species on a picture that does not really shows the species' diagnostic features is confusing, at least. It would be good to add which characters you used to distinguish both. As far as I am concerned, both species (S. pulicarius and S. desoutteri) are most likely conspecific (I am currently studying the type series).

With kind regards,
Marc
