Midge Identification

seems like it would be pretty hard to identify a midge if you were not a serious entomologist.

I posted these pictures on a thread about Rocky Ford.

body size is estimated at 8 mm

Hi Jay-

Actually, that may come pretty close to being the understatement of the year. :)
It really takes a taxonomist who specializes in them, and even then, I suspect a female specimen (like yours is) would present significant problems.
