  1. Hi Joost, I've changed the ID :o)
    A common mistake: Nymphs of winged species do not have developed wings yet and thus are often mistaken for adults of wingless species. The nymphs of Apterygida media are recognizable by the long hairs on the calipers and abdomen - nicely shown in your image!
