Another Chronomid fly, May 2, my balcony, Minas de Riotinto.

Not as beautiful as the Tanytarsus signatus, but nice too.
Any idea?

Probably Microtendipes.

You are incredible, John!! I just thought that it was imposible to ID these tiny Chironomidae up to genus level, if we except the most obvious ones.

It am beginning to take a lot of interest in these tiny midges.

Thanks!!! |t
