This fly is among one of the most beautiful I've seen among the Nematocera.

And finally we are seeing one specimen belonging to the BLEPHARICERIDAE family. Grin I think this is a Liponeura sp. species. It is nice to see the wing without alula showing a striking anal lobe!! Smile

See that M2 doesn't connect to the M1 vein. Cool Very nice to see very tiny transversal veins in the wing!! ShockCool

"Larval blepharicerids constitute a guild of highly specialized grazers in streams." Grin

If it was Blepharicera sp. we would see crazy eyes. Smile

I'm trying find these:

Hogue, C. L. 1981. Blephariceridae. pages 191-197, in McAlpine, J. F. et al. (eds.): Manual of Nearctic Diptera. Volume 1. Research Branch, Agricultural Canada, Ottawa. Agric. Can. Monogr. 27.

There are many species of Liponeura:

http://www.biolib.../id118307/

In Neartic I think Blepharicera and Agathon are common genus. Liponeura only in Palearctic? Not sure.
