|Nephrotoma appendiculata, the spotted crane fly, is a species of crane fly. This species has a wingspan of about 50 millimetres (2.0 in), and a body length of 13–15 millimetres (0.5–0.6 in). The body is yellow with short black stripes on the thorax and a black line on each section of the abdomen. The wings have a thin yellow line near the leading edge. This species can be seen from May to September at woodland edges, in gardens, fields and on farmland. The larvae, known as "leatherjackets", feed on the roots of grasses, while the adults feed on umbellifers such as cow parsley.|
