Moved from Euborellia. Danilo, what do you think about these three?



Moved from Anisolabididae.

Moved from Anisolabis.

Pale segments on antennae suggest that this is Euborellia

suspect Anisolabis

It's the only other photo I got before it escaped into a crevice. It's terrible quality, but it gives a better idea of the shape, I guess... if that helps. Thanks for the possible ID.

Well the pictures are not that great but at the size (2cm +) and the outside I would probably tap rather than on Euborellia Anisolabis. The female has no komplet yellow sensor therefore falls A. maritima ever made.
I think it will be the Euborellia Arcanum.
The females of this type may well be quite large. In my material it once was 2.5 cm.
