I have a question regarding Loxocera hoffmannseggi: what are the main features that differentiates this species from the other Loxocera?

Is this genus sexual dimorphic?

Just compare with this one: http://www.dipter...d_id=15265. It is by far the largest species of the loxocerines in our region and noticable darker than most. Especially pay attention to the elongate basal antennal segments, too.
