I'm a bit stumped with this Ptychopteridae found last week in S Poland. From what I know, there aren't any Ptychoptera in Poland (are there any at all?) that have an orange basal antenna segment. Sadly I couldn't collect the specimen because it was found in a national park.

For other members: unusually yellowish (freshly emergent?) male of Ptychoptera albimana.
