Southern Germany, 21.05.20, agriculture country with low bushes at a small creek.
I know there are many Psychodidae sp. and I am no expert, but could this be Psychodidae fusca?
I found the following Refs. to differentiate P. fusca and P. auriculata:
1. P. fusca
2. P. auriculata

I can not see the difference in the gallery picture:

Is it possible to see the difference for the unknown species, to say it is P. fusca? Or is the picture not good enough and one would need a proper picture from below the wing against light?

Peripsychoda's are difficult. The last vein is a bit curved and so it could be P. auriculata. But its very subtle. And I do not know if there are more species overthere, besides fusca and auriculata.

Thank you Weia. So it is probably better to leave it as Peripsychoda sp.

128 in the New World as of 2009. Should be around 140 worldwide depending on how you split.
