Tipula confusa (Crane Fly sp.)


Tipula confusa is one of the smaller craneflies with marbled dark and pale patches on wings, which are held in line with the body at rest.
Tipula confusa can be confused with Tipula rufina but this species has a clear dark stripe on the side of the thorax which Tipula confusa lacks.
