first photo has two insects in shot. Same species?
No interactions present.
updated photos as was one cropped during upload
I do not see a female. The yellow/black one looks more like a Saw Fly female that is possibly stuck in a spiders web. The Crane Fly in each of the two images is male. Females are pointed at the back.
shows two scarce/rare species of the same genus. On the left is a male Ctenophora pectinicornis while on the right is a female Ctenophora flaveolata. Ideally these two should be uploaded to separate threads so they can be unambiguously labelled.
What's the approved way to separate these? Leave this id as is and post again referring only to the female or edit this id and crop the photo? Or post two new observations with only one on each..
Thanks for the id and comments!
delete the photo with both species and rename thread Ctenophora pectinicornis. Crop photo of flaveolata and post under title Ctenophora flaveolata. if cant delete photo then start two new threads.
