interesting. I don't have that species in my list for Germany but my Wife has it in her list. I tried to deduce what it is from my list because i have no keys or descriptions. Anyway, Thank you for replying, Theo. I forgot that you also study Bibionidae.

I've added a dorsal shot if it helps. I have the specimen but i have not examined it. I don't have keys or drawings of genitalia so i try to avoid examination.

hopefully you can see what is necessary to confirm reticulatus. Otherwise, i can add microscopic photos when i get around to examining the specimen.
