Thread subject: :: Bibio hortulanus ?

No, this is not johannis, most likely the other very common species: lanigerus. Why ?
the stigma is brown, not black.
Johannis is easy to recognize in the field: all hairs on both thorax and abdomen are black. In lanigerus many hairs are light.
But I can't see this feature on the pictures.
