this Mycetophilidae was observed on 21th May in the north of Yonne department (Burgondy, France). According to the wing veins the genus Leia should be possible. Are you in agreement with this suggestion ?
All my thanks for your help.

First of all, the long vein R1 easily rules out Leia and closely related genera (with R1 as long as crossvein r-m or shorter). Apparently a female Mycetophila nr. fungorum.
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,

Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.

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
