If the radial node is setulose, it should be H. confinis.

H. confinis is definitely listed for Berlin.

One thing: I have no idea what is the radial node?
I'm assuming you mean the base of r5 (I get this expression from Tschorsnig)
I've shown the base of r5 plus the "node at the junction of humeral crossvein and vein Sc" (I get this expression from Rognes). I have never seen "radial node" in a drawing of a wing.

Hopefully, one of these areas in my photo is the radial node (I guess the R vein means radial, thus the node is what I call 'the base of r5".) Sorry for my lack of understanding here.

I will post a photo of the areas with setae. be right back ...

Yes, radial node is the base of R4+5.

Thank You Sir Stephane. I appreciate your Time and Expertise very much.
I will refer to the base as radial node from now on. Thank You.

Meantime, I forgot to add a photo that would've helped you more. I am sorry. I get tired at the end of a day. I noticed that the hypopleuron/meron is a critical feature for determination. The meron of this species is bare. I've added the photo to this message for clarity.

Thank You for the determination. I wish for you a Pleasant Day.

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).

13.11.17 13:10
Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx
