You're welcome, Osama! I agree, Mark, definitely A. ungarica! I remembered that I have spotted the same species in Croatia two years ago, these two looks identical :) http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/427...

Hey Jopy we must have been searching simlutaneously. I thought I found enough variation to go with ungarica and range was good. :)

Hello, Mark, I agree with A, ungarica, it was my first choice, but I wasn't sure :)
