If you have the opportunity to collect males (plural) as well (eyes touching on froms), then please, do so. From what I have been able to see so far it may well be an undescribed species. I have 'located' four European species that were not included in Rozkosny's European revision: two species from the Canary Islands that look quite different and two species described more recently from Turkey. There is some resemblance with O. turcica but the yellow markings on the head of the female are different.
