Berlin - August 2019 - 5mm male?

Hello everyone,

I found this walking around on a leaf in the sunshine. I guess Lonchaea and my guess for a species is Lonchaea fugax. I think it is a male.

Thank you,

Hi John Yes its a male Lonchaea but not L. fugax which has entirely yellow tarsomeres and is smaller. At 5mm it could possibly be one of the L. peregrina group. Happy to have a look at it if you still have the specimen

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
