Is this Miltogramma germari? Not punctatum I think, but I have not found out yet what M. testaceifrons looks like.

Hi Johan

This is typical M. germari indeed. Testaceifrons is much smaller, more slender, very rare and restricted to Zuid-Limburg. Germari is common in the seadunes of NL. One of those ‘ Hesperia comma’ distributions I once described in ‘ Duin”: common in the seadunes, rare and very local inland. Typical for grassland species in NL.
