Hello. Happy New Year everyone !
I found this specimen on a wall of the house.
Antennae, wing shape and hairiness are different in Clogmia albipunctus.
The kind that seems closer to me is Pneumia but I have no criteria to support this direction. Feuerborniella would also be a track but ...
Your opinion is welcome.
Thank you.

Bonjour et bonne année 2019.
J'ai trouvé ce spécimen sur un mur extérieur de la maison.
Les antennes, la forme des ailes et la pilosité sont différentes chez Clogmia albipunctus.
Le genre qui me semble plus proche est Pneumia mais je n'ai pas de critère pour appuyer cette direction. Feuerborniella serait aussi une piste mais...
Votre avis est le bienvenu.

Psychodidae are so nice -and so difficult to identify without a collected specimen and a microscope... (compare https://diptera.i...d_id=29784) You are right, this is not Clogmia albipunctata. Help can only come from Gunnar M. Kvifte or Phil Withers, but the former has not been seen in the forum for quite a long time. Maybe you could send them a private message or an e-mail.
Regards, Sundew

Merci Sundew.
La lecture du sujet proposé montre bien la difficulté avec ces Psychodidae...
J'ai envoyé un MP à Gunnar M. Kvifte lui proposant dans le même temps de lui faire parvenir le spécimen.


Thank you Sundew.
The reading of the proposed subject shows the difficulty with these Psychodidae...
I sent an MP to Gunnar M. Kvifte proposing at the same time to send him the specimen.
