The Crane flies are ubiquitous in the US, though most live in moist or wet areas, there are grassland and even desert species. In the family Tipulidae with two subfamilies, there are over 1600 species in North America. They are the most primitive of the flies. I have never seen a species list local or otherwise and I'm not sure I want to. This is a spring pair that flew mated to this cedar. This is a large species. There are many down to the size of mosquitoes. None have biting mouth parts. All live as adults for only a few days and the adults do not feed.

The elongate and alien mouthparts that likely never eat anything. Note the pollen dusting, perhaps just from a chance banging into spring flower structures.
