    Thanks again Zac. Sometimes I think I don't have photos good enough for ID to species.

    Hi Reiner - your photos are fantastic, no need to worry. For most craneflies a clear shot of the wing venation will enable identification to genus. Most species identification will require microscopic examination of the male terminalia, so a physical specimen is needed in many cases, though there are a few species with distinct patterning that can be easily recognised. Thanks for sharing.
