Andrzej Woznica suggested this might be S. dawnae, and these close ups of head bristles and dusting suggest he is right according to the Withers Suillia key where dawnae was described.

The front orbital bristle sits well forward of the ocellar bristles.

The habitat, photographed 9 October 2017. There aren't many fungi around in April, so it was maybe attracted by fox dung or similar. Or it was just there by chance.

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

.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

26.10.17 13:37
