Hilara came to my lamp last night, in the bocage of the north of France.
Hilara maura? or Hilara fuscipes?
I do not know the distinguishing criteria between these two species ...
Or a third possible perhaps?
Thank you,
Paul Beuk

Definitely in the maura group and most likely maura itself. The group has relatively few strong setae on thorax and legs.

How do I submit photos for identification

Probably something in the file's 'ource data. I edited it and saved as png. Now it is okay.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

No worries. Not everyone has time all the time. Wink

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently
