Nephrotoma crocata

Wasn't quite sure where to put this. It's not a blog (and I haven't finished the last one yet!) and it's not ID help.

Nephrotma crocata, RDB3(?)

Could put it under Photos, Insects:Diptera? ;) Tis a very nice beastie, craneflies seem to be either boring wee grey jobbies or cosmic stunners with bugger all in the middle. I like this one lots! Is there a version of the key online do you know?
