With Didea, to be on the safe side, pictures of the face (completely yellow or with dark central prominence and mouth edge) and the halters (knob yellow or dark) are recommended. But the shape of the yellow markings on the abdomen of this female clearly points to D. intermedia!

Thank you for the confirmation. I'll try to always photograph the face in the future.
Many greetings
