wow! Cool

No Nephrotoma. Looks like Dictenidia bimaculata to me, but I am no expert.

Hallo Jürgen,

vielen Dank für deine Bestimmung. Meine Schätzung der Größe war wohl sehr großzügig.

Viele Grüße und ein gutes, neues Jahr, Konrad.

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently
