Limonia (Geranomyia) sp.
A very small Crane Fly of the Family Limoniidae. It is another of the rather rare kind with a long proboscis instead of the usual snout. It was hanging from the roof of a porch.
Semi-urban area on the outskirts of San Cristobal de Las Casas, 2,200 meters.
While many if not most Crane Flies do not feed as adults, the species of Limonia (subgenus Geranomyia) feed on nectar using their long proboscis.
