Am I OK with Nephrotoma appendiculata for this pair? I know there are several similar species and am not sure if this photo is good enough to be sure of species. Taken 20 June, central lowland France, on the wooded banks of a former sand extraction pit now filled with water.

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.
