A Platypalpus sp. found in North of France, at Oxelaere, the 13 August 2022, sitting along with Platypalpus minutus/australominutus on Hydrangea sp. bushes, at the north side of my house
Could it be a female Platypalpus pallidiventris ? (or cursitans ?)

Seems quite probable, but it is almost impossible to rule out the very similar species using photos.

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
