A Chironomidae female about 5 mm found in East of France (Wittelsheim 68310) September 20th, 2018 in a little wood.
Psectrotanypus varius ? Sorry for the picture, it is only one I have take.
Best regards.

Yes, this looks OK for P. varius - the wing markings can vary a bit.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

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.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
