This flew into my house the other day and I’m stumped at what it is. It looks like a wasp/mosquito flying thing.
We believe we have correctly identified your Crane Fly as Nephrotoma crocata, thanks to an image on the Alamy stock photo site, an identification we then verified on both Diptera Info and iSpot using the Natural History Museum’s UK Species Inventory. Crane Flies are harmless and they do not sting.
