Hi to all!

My guess is Atylotus fulvus. Any chance to mix it up with something other? Length approx. 10-12 mm.

Found 26.6.2022 in Germany, Upper Bavaria, north of the city of Traunstein, about 590 m a.s.l., coordinates 47.89379, 12.63168.

My “guess” is Silvius alpinus. Check the ocelli !

Eye too bright for Atylotus as well. Nice find !

Many thanks Theo!

I knew it's a good find, when I saw it, and was glad it allowed me to take a few photos at least.
Best greetings
