Photo taken in Pontevedra (NW Iberian Peninsula) on 03/10/2015 in a garden. It seems a Rhinophoridae. It could be a Paykullia?

Many thanks, Theo.
The legs were reddish (in another exemplary nearby also). I could not find other similar in internet and I do not know Paykullia partenopea.
I have more pictures if you should need.
Best regards and happy new year.

Partenopea is much smaller and the leg colouration - alas - is variable in maculata.
