Hello! This was recently found by Karcza Zsolt in Hungary. I have never seen something like this.
This is a male of a Therioplectes species. In Hungary, gigas is present. But in this specimen, hairs on the face are yellowish, whitish and not black. And it is a bit differs from gigas. So I think that this is maybe a Therioplectes tunicatus. What do you think? Could you help me please?
