Very grateful, jorgemotalmeida. Under the guidance that tells me, I'll change the title to help them more easily identifiable.

Best regards!

Very grateful to Paul.
Is there a special detail that can be photographed to get to identify the species.?
When specialists are looking for details that distinguish the different species within Desmometopa, What seek details of difference.?

Regards

Perhaps this one id identifiable with the images given, but I do not have my key here to check. Wink Colour of various body parts (legs, palpi) and dust patterns (head, side of thorax) are among the relevant characters.

Yes, beautiful photos of a female Desmometopa varipalpis, see http://milichiidae.info/category/classification/desmometopa-varipalpis. I would love to add these photos to milichiidae.info if I may.
There are only three Desmometopa species in Spain and D. varipalpis differs from the other two in the grey colour (microtomentum). The males have enlarged palpi that are easy to recognize. The species is getting more and more common.

I am very grateful for your participation and support. And also for the good opinion expressed on my photographs.
Of course you can have these images for inclusion in milichiidae.info. It will be an honor for me. And if you want, I can send to the email that tells me these pictures to a much larger size.

Very grateful.
