[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On Fauna Europaea I found out That this species is only known from Germany, Sweden, Estonia, Belarus, Norway, Finland and North-west Russia. This species is not present in France According to Fauna Europaea.

According to Berland (1947) this species:
- Would be in the collection of J. de Gaulle (Général of the family of the ...), it would have been captured by Clamart (Hauts-de-Seine Dept. - France.)
- Would Have Been captured by Pic in Dept. of Saone-et-Loire ( France).
According to Noblecourt (2004) this species is present in France.

With thanks to D & JP Balmer who identified this species!

This is not a frequently seen species of winged insects, Harm. Your note, frankly, does not elaborate on it, per se. The shape and size of the antennae suggest it is not a fly, in any case.
The picture is technically flawless. The semi dorsal angle of exposure gives a perfect view of the entire insect.
Thanks for sharing it.
