:) thank you Malcom! You're right, I'm not familiar with the naming, so your comment is actually very helpful :) Thanks again!

Hi Daimon, actually only 3 species. The names Esben and Linaeus are the names of scientists who allocated those names. The second part of the scientific name is always lower case only so it should be germanica. The third part, where used, in this case graeca, again lower case only, denotes a sub-species, only one of which is found in Greece. Hope this helps.

Thank you Daniele! Well, according to Wikipedia, there are some only 4 species living in Greece. The Panorpa titschacki Esben, the Panorpa Germanica Linaeus, the Panorpa Panorpa Germanica Graeca and the Panorpa Lacedaemonia .
