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.

Hello, Sericomyia-Arctoph
ila... this synonymy is based on Nearctic material only. Although very respected authors, I think it is not wise to follow this synonymy without studying palearctic Arctophila

29.11.16 13:37
Approaching 2/3s, which I consider a very good result already. But there is room for improvement. Wink

28.11.16 17:26
so, Paul, almost 50% of the costs is not covered yet.

28.11.16 13:40
Thanks Theo! So it "should" be Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis.

28.11.16 11:45
It is a matter of opinion. Some (modern) authors consider Arctophila no longer valid at genus level.

25.11.16 07:51
Hello! Can someone please tell me what's the actual name for Arctophila bombiforme? There are: Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis, Sericomyia bombiformis and Arctophila bombiforme. Thanks Smile

22.11.16 23:52
Paul I submitted another (better) photo of Madiza pachymera for the gallery

21.11.16 11:49
Thanks Paul

21.11.16 10:36
FYI: The name can also refer to the Dipteran family Clusiidae, named after the genus Heteroneura (= Clusiodes).

Thanks John that's looks good
