Hello!

I am just going through my older photos checking for unidentified species. Perhaps someone can help me with these Nematocera of whom I am even unsure about the families (except the first one, which I think is genus Tipula, maybe fascipennis?). Thanks in advance for any hints!

All photos were taken in Ostwestfalen/Germany on meadows near a wood or in our garden.

This one was about three fourths the size of a Tipula oleracea, photo taken May-21, 2005:
insekteninfos.de/diptera/2010/Tipulidae_spp_3.jpg

This is from May-24, 2004. Same species?

A darker, smaller, more slender species, photographed on May-25, 2003:
insekteninfos.de/diptera/2010/Nematocera_spp_1.jpg

A rather small black and red species which visited umbellifers on August-28, 2004:
insekteninfos.de/diptera/2010/Nematocera_spp_2a.jpg
insekteninfos.de/diptera/2010/Nematocera_spp_2b.jpg

And again a spring species (May-01-05) visiting milkweed flowers in our garden:

I think so. Maybe a Tiplua (lunatipula) species.

A darker, smaller, more slender species, photographed on May-25, 2003:
[image3]
I think a male of Ptychoptera (Ptychopteridae).

A rather small black and red species which visited umbellifers on August-28, 2004:
[image4, image 5]
A species of the Keroplatidae, probably an Orfelia.

And again a spring species (May-01-05) visiting milkweed flowers in our garden:
[image6, image7]
I think a female of Ptychoptera (Ptychopteridae).

And I took the liberty of making all images visible, rather than showing the links. That makes it easier to answer the questions and (if we want) to discuss the identifications. Smile

Hi J?rgen,

I totally agree with Paul concerning the Ptychopteridae. His identification will not be a surprise to you I guess, because your first Pthychoptera image is also found on "insektenfotos.de" (http://insektenfo...e)_001.jpg), where it was already identified as Ptychoptera contaminata.

Thanks for your help!

That's right, but I did not know if those many pics were too much for one thread. I did not want to make the page unreadable due to long loading time for modem users.
Best regards,
Jürgen

Yes, that's on my own Diptera-Pics-Page (http://insektenfo...iptera.htm), but I included it there only with a 'cf.' and a '?' at the end, because that was only my own amateurish identification. Nice that I was not so wrong... :-)
Best regards,
Jürgen

You may always put htem in different threads. Modem users can now load them from the same site in stead of having to open two sites. 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

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
