Limoniid Crane Fly


until recently... the limoniids were placed as a subfamily within Tipulidae.! limoniids belong to the group of craneflies referred to as 'short-palped' craneflies. this is due to their last maxillary palpus segment (mouth appendage) being short in comparison to 'long-palped' craneflies (Tipulidae proper) where this segment is noticeably elongate and whip-like. limoniids are also usually smaller and more delicate looking than tipulids.!
