Hi Manuel

Nice photos of a female Lonchaea, It is almost impossible to tell which species it is especially when it comes from southern Spain in early spring - I am sure there are many as yet undescribed species in that area.. If you ever get a chance to catch one I would be delighted to see it !! best wishes ..... Iain
