Berlin - July 2018

Hello everyone,

I've noticed a photo of mine that might depict a male of O. petrei. If i remember correctly, the abdomen is paler than germinationis. Thus, could this be O. petrei?

Best wishes,
johnes81 attached the following image:

Hello Libor,

Thank you for replying. I am still looking through photos and i noticed this series of photos. I've been wanting to post since last year but i've been too busy. I'm trying to get through more photos before my shoulder operation in a week.

Anyway, I notice that petrei male is missing from the gallery. It would be nice to have some photos, so i will put somehing together for the gallery...

Best wishes,

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
