Thread subject: :: Tipula sp.?

Posted by Sasha Rajkov on 30-07-2014 23:37

Here is a hypopygium of a male Tipula sp. from Eastern Serbia, Grza springs, near Paraćin.
The photos were taken of a live specimen, without catching it, on 19th of April 2014.
Habitat is a mixed oak and hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) forest, with also some beech. Soil layer is mostly thin, on limestone.

My experience and identification literature (especially regional) on Tipulidae is pretty scarce, so any help or directions on this specimen would be appreciated.
