Semaphore Fly Poecilobothrus nobilitatus

Is this Poecilobothrus nobilitatus? It looks unique with the white wing tips. I've seen them at a couple of sites, one recently.

Yes, absolutely - instantly recognisable by eye - about the only member of the Dolichopodid family that is, I should think.

As I am recording this family in Cheshire, I would be grateful if you would send me the record (date, site name, grid reference).  Alternatively you can submit the details to the Cheshire Local Records Centre using the on-line RODIS system.
