On this photo we can see a relative long pv on the hindtibia.
There are 5 species with a pv seta above middle of the hindtibia.
A. borealis, billbergi, denticauda, silvestris and teriolensis.
All species except A. borealis are present in Sweden.
Looking at the visible characteristics I agree with Alliopsis silvestris.

In your other thread, we can't see the pv on t3, but I think it also is A. silvestris female

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
