Crane Fly Emerging  - Tipula cranefly life cycle - Tipula Freshly emerged cranefly - Tipula - male

Moved from Crane Flies.

I would guess on
the male of Tipula paludosa just by association. If you turn the head up-side-down and see the distance between the two eyes, you maybe able to tell which species for sure. In Tipula paludosa, the distance is wider , while it is narrower in Tipula oleracea. - Chen
