This one was photographed by a friend, Albert Ruh? in Girona, in Catalonia last week.

I know id to species level is difficult, but is it really a Tipulidae?

Thx in advanced

My contact said, that it looks like Tipula (Tipula) paludosa, but as long as wings and antennae are not visible, it could be some other species from genus Tipula subgenus Tipula (there are 4 more in Spain) Wink

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
