A male Carcelia, I’d say C. bombylans.

Thank you so much! I assume that examination of the genitals is necessary for a completely certain identification? C. bombylans is not on Haraldeide's checklist.

Well, to be honest, it looks a bit more like C. puberula. But that species doesn’t have a summer generation, spring only.

If spring is very late in Norway, it could still be puberula.

Hence the cf.

A shot of the head from above might help. It would need to be dead straight !

It was already dead, so I did not shoot it ...
The spring in Norway was rather early this year.
