Thread subject: :: Otites formosa group

This male of the Otites formosa group I collected last week in the south of the Netherlands. I do not find it easy to make a decision between O. ruficeps or O. porcus. Can someone help me out?

Good morning,
looks like Otites porcus to me (occiput, femora and tibia widely orange) but im not specialist!
In O. ruficeps occiput, femora and tibia entirely black.
check: Kameneva & Korneyev, 2019

best wishes

Thanks for your help! I also thought it should be porcus.
