Tipulid

Could anyone help with this tipulid, found on the 19th October at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, East Sussex? I though it might be Tipula luna, but then found there is a similar species, Prionocera turcica. I'm not familiar with either so need some help!

Re: Tipulid

Actually, Chris, from just those angles I was tempted to think along similar lines to you. But time of the year made me wary so I decided to wait until a more experienced person appeared.
