Is it Laphria flava or L. sibirica? And is it possible to distinguish these species by their habitus?

Thanks for yuor help!

To me this looks like Laphria ephippium

Thanks Reinoud!

I see your publication, it says that ephippium has "dorsal side of abdomen with mostly black hair". So I also have ephippium in the next photo.

And if we talk about the flava group, then these species are determined only by the genitals?

Yes, this one also looks like L. ephippium. I still have to find out how to separate the different species within the L. flava group. Some have visible characters like L. caspica which has very short hair in the middle of the tergites so they seem to be almost bare in the middle.

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