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.

Here in Britain it has been a very poor season for all insects. Most families of fly have been very scarce compared to some years ago. This is about the fifth poor season and it was the worst yet. Wha

May was very atypical and April. April was very cold - the coldest month in 30 years. And May was very rainy. But this does not explain itself why the decrease of insects. Or it is just a normal cyc

well I collect in those places since 2005, and it is perfectly clear there were several families I did not see this year, or even the rather common Tachinidae, for the current year I only saw dozens.

Well it should be compared to the insect diversity and numbers of that region for the last years/decades...

This year in Portugal there was a very clear decrease/waning number and diversity in all insect orders. Fewer tachinids than usual, for example. Fennel flowers are very scarce of insects these days.
