Please, could anyone recommend Tipulidae literature for determination?
I live in Galicia, NW Spain, but West Palearctic literature is fine for my territory.
PDF files are wellcomed. Thanks.

It is not a key, but there is a World catalogue of Craneflies by Oosterbroek at there you can search for literature.

The Tipulidae part of "Lindner, Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region" ist available and not so old, but has two disadvantages:

- it's in German (well, not a REAL disadvantage after all ;-)
- it's not a bargain (about 260 Euro)

You may want to contact Prof. S. Podenas (, who is one of leading world experts in crane flies, and has been working a lot on West Palaearctic fauna.Cool
