Crane Fly
Many people have helped with the id of some of these flies, especially Mike Thomas, Martin Hauser, Chris Maier, Bastiaan Wakkie, Chen Young (Crane flies), Chris Thompson, and Eric Eaton. Obviously, many are still unidentified so if you see anything you can identify I would love to know what they are! My email link is at the bottom of the page... A few groups of flies have their own page, and those links are listed first, click on the image at left to go to those pages... Dr Chen Young, who has graciously IDed most of my crane fly shots, now has a web site with images of many eastern species of cranes: This site is being published in March 2020, and many of the pages have been brought over from my old site but are not yet cleaned up from transcription issue... please be patient with me!
