Odinia is a difficult genus that is in need of revision. I know that Phil Withers (who sadly passed away eralier this year) was working on the genus Odinia. He also had some material from "De Kaaistoep" (the Netherlands) to study.
What literature did you use to end up at Odinia ornata?

I also still have some specimens from the Netherlands that I still need to (try to) identify.

Hi Jan Willem,
I compared some Odinia species in the gallery. Particularly looked at the leg colour and the spots on the wings. It is neither Odinia boletina, nor Odinia maculata. In time I will send the specimen to Elias or Paul.
