Sweep netted 4th June in a broadleaved forest 17 m asl in Kristiansund, Møre og Romsdal. Found it to match humeralis quite well, but the bristles is hard to approach for me.

Help appreciated as always!

Cheers Jørn

Hello ! Oh yes, 2 dc, 3vt, Mesopleuron black, with anepimeron (sometimes) yellow; katepisternum black; lobe post-pronotal yellow; Proepisternum yellow => Chamaepsila humeralis (Zetterstedt, 1847)
It's a male so if you have kept it, the examination of the genitals should confirm it Wink
