Good evening,

I have spend a lot of time trying to find something about this 3 mm midge. Its from Juli near Brunssum.
Now I hope I've chosen the right family with Dixidae.

Sorry, Ben, wrong family. It is a member of the Ceratopogonidae, I think subfamily Forcipomyinae, maybe even a species of Forcipomyia.

Thanks Paul,

Well, at least Ceratopogonidae and Dixidae are neighbours in the Dutch checklist, so I hope my guess wasn't to bad.
