    1. Thank you Dear Lisa.. Posted one year ago
  2. This is a Criocerinae inn the group Lema/Oulema - from the shape of the pronotum I would think Oulema. It's a difficult group with many species having lookalikes and much historical confusion and misidentifications. Maybe it is quite possible to identify, due to the red head, but it would take someone who knows what species occur in the area ...
    It is _not_ the wide spread Oulema melanopus, even if you will find images with that name that look like this one on the internet - those are misidentified!
