Thread subject: :: Neomochterus pallipes ? -> Neomochterus shineri

Thank you Reinoud!

Here is a couple of close-ups of the head, it seems that the second antennae segment is not black but indeed more brownish-reddish.

Neomochtherus schineri is not among the species included in the key I used probably because the key is from Germany and according to Fauna Europeae, it seems to be a more southern species. What would be the criteria to ID this species?

Thank you again for your help
