Very grateful for your help.
Sorry for my delay in answering, but for a long time I have never received notices of comments on my entries.
I have collected specimens. I can take pictures and add them to my entry, of the details that can establish the differences between those species.
I might as well send you the insects; although I don't know if in the current situation that could be more complicated...
Kind regards from the south of Spain
