Rhaphium

the length of the cercus is just visible, so it can be seen that it's not R. caliginosum. Might be interesting to count how many you need to check to find that species. I think it took me about 7 or 8

Rhaphium

I visited this woodland site on purpose to find some dolis which I don't usually meet. I took a mass of these with a pooter, must have checked 20 or so...all appendiculatum, so far. Plenty more in the freezer still...I'll let you know. Lots of Dolichopus, too, but nothing unusual.
