Is it possible to tell which genus and perhaps species this 10 mm female is?

Photos from 3 august and 1 september 2012 Kramfors 62 N, E 17 Ångermanland, Sweden.

Thanks for your help in advance

??? A 10 mm reddish Tipula oleracea? This is clearly Limoniidae, I think genus Limonia (but I am no expert).

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
