Chrysopilus asiliformis, the 'little snipefly', is a species of 'snipe flies' belonging to the family Rhagionidae.

This fragile-looking fly shows a slender body with dark stripes on the abdomen, without bristles. The legs are long and thin, with yellow femora. The wings are hyaline with a dark well marked pterostigma. Eyes are greenish.

Hello Siggi,
Excellent macro in beautiful natural colours. A pity that not the whole snipefly is in focus. The details around head and body are awesome. Taken from a very good POV.
