Tipula pagana (Meigen, 1818)
Tipula Crane Flies are difficult to identify unless using an identification key, so great care has to be taken when identifying Crane Flies from photographs. However, Tipula pagana females are among the easiest to identify, as they have greatly reduced wings. Often found commonly between September and November, there seem to be no modern Nottinghamshire records, apart from our own along Eakring Road, Mansfield.
