Salut Roland.C'est pas une tipule mais une Panorpa communis, une espèce d'insectes mécoptères de la famille des Panorpidae et du genre Panorpa. C'est l'espèce de panorpe la plus commune en Europe occidentale. Toutes les espèces de ce genre sont connues sous le nom de Mouche scorpion.La capture est absolument super,je la connais bien je sais qu'il n'est pas facile avoir des details si parfaits a cause de ses petites dimensions,vraiment super!! Belle journee' et merci,Luciano

Hello Roland,
Exceptional sharp detailed macro of this interesting insect. Splendid clear colors and taken from a very good POV. Nice composition too.

Bonjour Roland,
Une image très réussie de la mouche scorpion, un insecte bien particulier que je vois aussi dans le pré devant mon chalet.
Très belle photo.

Hi Roland
Strange insect! Seems to be a mixture of several species.
Excellent capture.


This looks like a kind of scorion, so following Lousat's comment, I looked it up using the name Panorpa communis and indeed it is commonly called a scorpionfly. Very intresting to see, and your phot makes the scorion like nature of the body very clear. Apparently it does not stin


The common scorpionfly has a black and yellow body, with a reddish head and tail. he male has a pair of claspers at the end of its tail (for holding the female during mating), giving it a scorpion-like appearance, although it is not a stinger. The adult insect has a wingspan of about 35 millimetres (1.4 in), with wings that are mostly clear, but have many dark spots or patches. Its head, mounted with large eyes, is drawn into a prominent, downward pointing beak, which opens at the tip of its head. The larva resembles a caterpillar and grows up to 20 millimetres (0.79 in) long. It has three pairs of thoracic legs and eight pairs of prolegs.[citation needed]
