Would it be possible to ID the genus/species? Found on 17.04.2019 in Kraków.

It looks like Limonia hercegovinae.
It is maybe the first observation from Poland.
In CCW (Catalogue of the Craneflies of the World) it is not listed from Poland.

Thank you very much!
I had quite a thorough look at different checklists and publications and couldn't find any info on this species being recorded in Poland.

Today I collected this Limonia in the exact same spot as the earlier one - could this also be L. hercegovinae?

This specimen has also dark ring on the femur so I think it is hercegovinae.

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

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.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
