Tonight was the first time this year, that the Culicidae were more numerous in our garden (Ostwestfalen/Germany) than the Trichoceridae. And also the females were drinking from the sugar-wine-fruit mix I had poured on some tree trunks. Can this female be identified more closely? It was rather big, about 10 mm. Thanks!

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
