I missed this one. At home I will have to dig up my key from somewhere and I will see if I can find its name.

OK Paul. More pictures (just in case), Sept. 18, 2007, Ozhigovo station, Naro-Fominsk district, Moscow region, Russia.

I am inclined to think these are both C. obscuripennis
but it is difficult to say with the actual specimen. If you collected the specimens: Are the palpi black or yellowish? Are the wings uniformly darkened, darker along the anterior margin or do the have a paler part in the middle?

Paul, could you recomend key for Campichoetidae? I still have unDet material from Turkey and it seems to me that Stackelberg's key I only have does not work.

Have a close look at the pictures; I think the palpi are yellowish.

It appears so, but I cannot be quite certain that what you see are the palpi...
Posted by Dmitry Gavryushin on 21-09-2007 11:02
As I see it Paul (and in specimens, too): palpi yellowish, wings uniformly darkened.
Posted by Paul Beuk on 21-09-2007 11:03
Well, then it should be C. griseola

OK. There's sometnig about differences of venation in Duda, but that was rather obscure for me...
