Platystoma it is, and it recalls P. lugubre (basitarsi red), but I don't know the Bulgarian species. The key https://img1.wsim...3414328806 asks for many characters that are not visible in the pictures - sorry! If Valery can't help, there is no chance...
Regards, Sundew

Yes, Claudia is right: Platystoma lugubre.

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
