Detetada à beira de uma estrada de terra batida numa zona limítrofe da cidade. Em volta há descampados e campos de cultivo com vegetação rasteira e flores selvagens. Photographed on the edge of a unpaved road adjacent to the town. The fields have low vegetation and wild flowers.

Thanks, again, FFHR.! Another location but the same species. :-)

This one belongs to the genus Oxythyrea, but since I'm not familiar with the fauna of Portugal I'll leave it with Oxythyrea sp. :)
