Different experts give me different names for this animal.

Is this the same?

Hello Elck,
If I am not mistaken I have seen this picture before, and I thought (and still think! :-)) this is X. segnis.
It is based on the bigger bristles that are visible on the underside of it's femur 3. X. segnis is the only one with this feature. And I think the portion of yellow on tibia 3 is smaller than it would be in X sylvarum.

Hi Gerard,
Yes you are right about the first picture, you saw that before,
the second I only took this week. As it turned out rather detailed I thought it might clear this up. Thanks, I'll change the name on the site.
