Hi,

I have problems with the key (Krivosheina, 1998) with this Notiphila (?) specimen. It has mid tibiae with 3 dorsal setae, yellow antennae, face with several strong setae, all tibiae yellow and abdominal tergites with 4 dark spots. The key leads to Notiphila flava Dahl, 1973 and the problem is, that the species should live in Afghanistan. The key does not match 100% because the face has many this hairs AND several strong setae. If it's not Notiphila at all, what might it be ?

From what I can see in the pictures and then running it through the Martin Drake's key (if it is Notiphila, I end up with the group around riparia, most notably umbrosa (Britain and Germany). For what it is worth...

It has mid tibiae with 3 dorsal setae, yellow antennae, face with several strong setae, all tibiae yellow and abdominal tergites with 4 dark spots. If you look at it - hind tibia has dark narrow band. And then it goes well to ripariaSmile

Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!

In Dutch some would use it as plural, for 'exemplaar' (exemplar or specimen). Ten exx. then is ten specimens.

Thanks Phil I am thinking exuviae but I can't find the abbrev. so perhaps so
