Beetle - Tritoma erythrocephala Beetle - Tritoma erythrocephala

Tritoma erythrocephala?
Possibly T. erythrocephala. The body shape is correct and the legs look orange in color. But, to confirm, I'd need to see a beter ventral picture. Tritoma erythrocephala is in a group that have very weakly dilated tibiae. There are other groups which can have similar color patters that have more widened tibiae.

 
thanks again, Paul
hope we see more of its tibiae

Moved tentatively; nice!
will seek confirmation, but we need more pix of this sp. for the guide in any case --well worth trying harder... pleeease? thanks!

Moved from Beetles.
