Thread subject: :: Rhagio atlanticus may be ?

Well, Bernard, you clearly did your homework !

Females scolopaceus and atlanticus are very similar, but the shorter antenna here strongly suggests atlanticus. Moreover, scolopaceus is on the Iberian peninsula restricted to the Pyrenees proper and even there it is extremely rare. Atlanticus is pretty common in Portugal.
