Could you please help me? Is this stupida? It was found in a sandy area on the 3th of August in south Hungary.

Only stupida is known from Hunagry.

I am not sure if stupida and iris are separable based on images only.

I could not figure out how iris could be separated from stupida. One theory I have is that iris has white hairing between eyes, which stupida does not have. Which would also make this stupida. However, the presence of white hairing may just be a difference between sexes, in which case this would not be a usable feature.
