Hello all,
I first thought it was Peleteria rubescens, but somehow, I doubt it now that I have looked closer. Any opinion ?
10 mm approx. Reserve naturelle de Sclaigneaux, Belgium, on sandy soil.
August 7th.
Thanks for your help
Philippe

Thanks for your reply Theo. Now, if you ask for bad photos, I'm your man Wink (I'am having big trouble with my eyesight at the moment, and have almost given up macrophotography untill it's mended) Here is one, very bad indeed, but from a slightly different angle.
There were two individuals sitting in the high grass in a slightly shaded place. The biotope around it is generally a dry heathland, but this is in a kind of hollow.

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
ry.wiley.com/doi/1
0.1111/j.1365-3113
.2008.00422.x/pdf
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

14.11.17 08:36
I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx
