Anyone know what my furry little friend is?

Might be one of the rot-hole species: tristis, rothschildii or laurencei. Only a male genitalia mount will suffice...

This definitely is a Clogmia. It looks more like C. latipennis, than like C.rothschildi. But latipennis is only known form Italy... So peculiar. Laurencei I do not know anything about...

It is C.latipennis. Now known from Italy, Spain, France, England and Netherlands. Differences with rothschildi are quite clear.
At what date did you see it?

Is this observation in iNaturalist? If not, please add.
Name of the genus now is Lepiseodina, Clogmia is outdated.
