Altitude : 2169 m - Taille : 8-10 mm
Réf. : 239836

I thought initially that this was Merodon clavipes, but evdb noticed rightly that the hind femur is not swollen enough and that the size is not 17-23 mm as stated by van Veen.

Now, what can it be?
Thanks in advance.

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.
