On June 7 2013 I found these female and male (normal size) Tipula on our window. The specific color pattern and black 'end' of the female specimen made me find Tipula selene. Could anyone confirm this?

Thanks for any comment, regards

My UK specimens of T. selene do look very similar to your photos, but I'm afraid I don't know if there are other similar species on the continent.

Thank you very much Martin. That is a good sign. I will wait a little longer to here if anyone knows this, because I don't know either.
