Epiphragma ocellaris
Epiphragma ocellaris belong to the family Limoniidae, in the order two-winged flies (Diptera), the suborder Nematocera, the infraorder Tipulomorpha and the superfamily Tipuloidea. Epiphragma ocellaris are widespread but rare in Europe.
Epiphragma ocellaris prefer moist habitats such as deciduous forests, swamps or wet meadows. They are active in May and June and from September to April and suck blood.
Their larvae, which probably develop in the soil, have hairy pseudopods (feet). They feed on parts of decaying plants.
