Here is a Ceratopogonidae that I collected the 7th of May 2020 in Southern France near Montpellier. I believe it belongs to the genus Forcipomyia, but I am not quite sure.

Forcipomyia. Based on the long hind basitarsus, probably not in the typical subgenus.

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

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

No idea what happened but it is corrected
