I think it may be old Taxonomy Ian , I am sure Roger will Clarify

The revision to Genus given the availability of keyable features on one image I think is a Safe Observation ??

Super Family Sciaridae 19 genera 266 Species

Sciara hemerobioides(=Sciara thomae) in Freeman (1983) And a revision of British species was suggested Chandler (2010)

Sciara [Lycoria] hemerobioides [thomae] (Scopoli 1763) (Family Sciaridae)

NBN give the synoymyms of

Sciara hemerobioides (Scopoli, 1763)AS insect - true fly (Diptera) Sciara thomae, Tipula hemerobioides, Tipula thomae

Sciara hemerobioides

Hi Ian

Sciara hemerobioides = Sciara thomae ? Was it revised all data sets indicate Sciara hemerobioides is current ??? and therefore the initial identification correct

Many Thanks
