Insecta, Diptera, Limnobiidae, Limonia nubeculosa Meigen, 1804 - Subtroglophile mosquito larger and more innocuous than the common mosquitos that pester our summer nights with their stings. This species is one of the more frequent elements in the wall association, the whole of organisms (generally Arthropods) that spend the light hours and winter on the walls of the caves in the zones near the entrance. Because of his tapered body and the very thin legs, it's difficult to see it, but is an important prey for a lot of troglophile and troglobite spiders. Like certain butterflies that live in the same habitat, during the day it remains motionless on the walls hanged with its long legs and go out only in the night to search food outside. (Size of the body: about 1 cm).
