This one certainly fits the description of Platypygus chrysanthemi, however, the genus in need on revision and there seem to be rather alot of undescribed species.

I hate always to disappoint the collectors - but I have to! I find it hard to combine collecting with making photo's. If i try, I'm sure I will ruin my camera or so...
Thanks for your attention
