Could this also be Metopia tshernovae?

Hi Sandra, I'm afraid that my ID M. tshernovae was not correct. Do you have a better view of the mid tibia of the specimen here? If there's a strong anteroventral bristle, it's M. campestris. This bristle could be present in your first specimen, too. Sorry for the confusion, I've overlooked it in Pape's key.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

Hi Eric,
Many thanks for your help.
Sadly I don't have pictures yet of the mid tibia. I'll make them and will reply on this post.
Greetings,
Sandra
Kind regards,

Little doubt this is argyrocephala. Since it was collected, we can check genitalia, in due time
