I caught this Psychodidae this week in a yellow pan in Almere Netherlands. With Freeman 1950I get stuck in the key of Psychoda at point 10 (P. setigera/P.trinodulosa), the drawings of the antennal tips do not coincide with my specimen. So I think/guess that it's not a species mentioned in Freeman 1950. The two main forks in the wing appear to be incomplete and I count 15 antennal segments.

Hi Paul,

For me it's probably some Psychoda (Logima) sp.
The lobe well separated from the last segment of the antennae excludes P. (Logima) albipennis.
So maybe P. (Logima) satchelli or P. (Logima) zetterstedti...
But this group of species really needs a huge revision!

Hi Jérôme,

Thank you. In the key of Freeman 1950 I skipped the albipennis-group, because the main forks in the wing seem to be incomplete, while they should be complete in albipennis/satchelli according to Freeman.
