Hi…..I took this photo on a bush in my front yard in Michigan’s upper peninsula. I found out it’s a Crane Fly but can you tell me the complete name for it. Thanks,
We contacted Eric Eaton to see if he recognized your species of Crane Fly. Here is his reply: “Well, shoot! I recognize it, but forget which genus it is. There is a picture of one in the photo gallery of the World Catalog of Tipulidae website; also pretty sure there is another image on the Crane Flies of Pennsylvania website, and if not, the webmaster of that site, Chen Young could ID your image. Sorry to refer you on again! Eric ” So, we followed Eric’s lead to The Crane Flies of Pennsylvania and discovered an image of your lovely Pedicia albivitta.
