Have found very different patterns of wing venation of the species Trichocera regelationis (if they are correct)... How is that possible? I mean, in other cases, such a large amount of variation would serve to differentiate distinct species whereas in this case it is assumed to be within-species variability?

1) Wikipedia (https://commons.w...ds_-_4.jpg). R4+5 begins in the middle of r-m. Male specimen.

2) Site: spessart-fliegen.de (http://www.spessa...s/6/6.html). R4+5 begins in the anterior part of r-m. Male specimen.

In all three previous examples the link shows other pictures.

Other examples in this site:
Female of Trichocera regelationis (https://diptera.i...ost_335849)
Limoniidae (NL) =>Trichocera regelationis (https://diptera.i...ost_248996)
Trichocera sp. (https://diptera.i...post_91060)

What do you think?

There is variation in the relative location of the base of r-m on R4+5. What concerns me more about your specimen is the very indistinct clouding at r-m and the very deep fork in M1+2, which make me think you may not have T. regelationis at all...

Paul, you are right, The fork of M1 & 2 veins is very long. The specimen was identified by Ewa Kozakiewicz looking at genitalia (follow link) but I will comment her that. I wish I could take some barcodes of this specimens to get clear what they are.
Best,
Rafael

Your specimen doesn't fit the "ideal" T.regelationis and I also have some doubts about the species, also after looking at the other photographs you posted on iNaturalist. In general wing venation in T.regelationis could be rather variable, and the clouding at r-m might be bleak as well, although usually it is visible rather well. Ewa Krzeminska thinks it is T.regelationis, but I am more cautious and would leave it with a question mark. Preparation of a genital fork could help to decide.

Thanks Andrius, I will prepare the genital fork with the method explained in Krzeminska 2021. Meanwhile, could you take a look at this possible female T.annulata? : https://diptera.i..._id=108782

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
