Hello!

Is it possible to tell whether this is Empicoris culiciformis or vagabundus (the third German species, E. baerensprungi, is not listed for our region)? Found on October-3 at our house wall (Ostwestfalen/Germany). Length about 5 mm. I had it already in my forum, but got no reply. The posting (in German) with several more pics can be found here:

Thanks in advance!

The UK key (by Peter Kirby) splits off vagabundus simply on length: vagabundus is 6-7.1mm, culiciformis and baerensprungi are 4.1-5.5mm. E. baerensprungi has a tubercle on the mid-line of the rear margin of the pronotum, culiciformis doesn't have this (best seen in side view).

What a lovely insect Grin

Many thanks! Then it must be E. culiciformis, it was really rather small.
Best regards,
Jürgen
