I think there are 4 species in Belgium but I can't find any key.
My best guess is Calliopum aeneum but with only this photo I don't know if it's possible for the right ID.
Any help is welcome.

Best regards

Yes Calliopum sp.
bronzed colour would hint at aeneum, but need to see genitalia to be sure.

I have a key for UK Lauxaniidae

Thank you for the answer Mark.
Is the key online available or is it just for personal use only?

Best regards

How do I submit photos for identification

23.02.21 10:02
Probably something in the file's 'ource data. I edited it and saved as png. Now it is okay.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

No worries. Not everyone has time all the time. Wink

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently
