Cranefly id help? - Tipula disjuncta - male - female

Cranefly id help? - Tipula disjuncta - Male Female
along Hwy 88 near Praag, WI, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA
May 14, 2010
I saw this mating pair in some low grass at the edge of a remnant bluff prairie. I was interested in the difference in color between the male and female - but it didn't help me identify them! Can anyone help?
