Thread subject: :: Forcipomyia cf. (Lepidohelea) pulcherrima. S. Spain

If Fauna Europaea is to be believed, it is no other Forcipomyia (Lepidohelea). There are two European species. One is found only in Spain on the continent of Europe. The other is not found to the southwest of Poland.

I hesitate in case there is a lookalike outside of the subgenus. I think that is unlikely, but it is possible. Most European works on Diptera are not accessible to me.
