Geranomyia? There are at least three genera of long-beaked crane flies in the Americas.

Thank you. So that's Limoniidae for the family. Can we also be sure about the subfamily Limoniinae or even the tribe Limoniini? According to Bugguide, Geranomyia is a subgenus of Limonia. Are the other contending genera also considered subgenera of Limonia?

Thank you! Now filed as Limonia (Geranomyia).
