Hi Maherjos

Yes definitely a Lamprolonchaea which are notoriously difficult to determine to species level but fortunately only one species has been recorded in Europe and as a result I can say fairly confidently that this is a male L. smaragdi Walker. I have seen speciemens recently from Mallorca.. Do you mind if I use the top photo attributed to you on the Lonchaeidae website??


Very grateful for your confirmation.
It will be a pleasure for me to incorporate my photography on the Lonchaeidae website. I can also make available a larger photograph, or other shots of the same insect.
