Hello,

last year I found my first (and only) Ectophasia, yet, a female. Three days ago I found the male below at the same location, visiting marguerite flowers on a meadow near forest (northwest Germany). E. crassipes again?

Here are some larger (1200x1200) pictures: http://insektenfo...adID=87444

I'm trying to retrain myself with these. Ectophasia can be tricky.

However, I do agree that this matches crassipennis well.
I live in Berlin and I find them in August more often than July.

You should wait for Theo.

I don't know exactly where you live but September is interesting. Good find Juergen.
You seem to find alot of interesting insects. I've seen your forum before. You find alot of interesting spider friends as well.

I'm happy that you found an Ectophasia Smile

A melanistic one, quite likely crassipennis.

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.
