Is it true that Panorpa vulgaris, male is in the picture?

Can Panorpa vulgaris be a synonym for Panorpa communis?

No. You can distinguish the two species (on a photo) by the fact that the basal spot extends over two wing cells in P. vulgaris (see arrows) and only one in P. communis.

Thank you, I really believed, but there was a controversial situation.

Jürgen: I see many errors on the internet. P. vulgaris is often misidentified as P. communis and vice-versa. I am happy that you post correct info about Panorpa. I like Panorpa very much. Well done, Jürgen Smile

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?
