The top row shows the "normal" wing patterns for this species, but note the two "forma 'a'" bottom left with much reduced spots, so such "lightly marked" specimen do occur in this species too!
Bottom right a few perspectives on the last abdominal segments of the male. Especially compare the shape of segment 7 to that of Panorpa cognata - helpful in ID!
