Crane fly - Tipula furca - Female

Any id suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!


Moved from Crane Flies.

Cf. Yamatotipula
This is probably Tipula (Yamatotipula), a subgenus with similarly marked wings.

Thank you so much for your id! I've been looking through genus, subgenus, and species related to Yamatotipula, and now realize that I'm still too ignorant of craneflies to tell the difference between the species. Do you think it's OK for me to move this image to subgenus Yamatotipula (Tipula subgenus Yamatotipula) ?

Wait a little
Wait a few more weeks to see if our crane fly expert has a better ID.

Moved from ID Request.
