Hello! This was found by Gődény Csaba is Hungary, recently. Am I right, if i got Hybomitra lundbecki female to this one? Third antennal segment is very wide and orange. And the lower spot in the frons is large, blackish and shining. Could you help me please? What do you think about this one?

Thank you! The only thing what I don’t understand is the 1. segment of the antenna. About my key, it has to be conspiciously gray dusted, and the 1. antennal segment is brown. I think in this specimen that segment is rather orange. Could you help me please in this? But I will check it, I have your book “Flied with three pulvilli”.
