Eumigus cucullatus subsp.almeriensis
thank you bayucca, again!you're right is more similar to the subsp. almeriensis. This subsp. seems to have a straight pronotal keel, so.....yes....you're right! hahahathank you again! one day I will send you a big cake with the top cherry!:)
If you are asking like that, I would say that Almeriensis is even a better match than Cucullatus cucullatus. And Almeria is not so far away. However, This naughty hoppers are very tricky to ID, very variable and with almost no reliable markings. So I would be really very happy to have the genus and even the species. I also think it is Eumigus cucullatus and best guess Eumigus cucullatus cf. almeriensis, to be picky ;-)...But I would be even more happy to have a confirmation of genus and species anyway and having the subspecies would be like putting the cherry on a huge birthday cake. One, only for me alone :-), but I certainly would share with you some pieces ;-)...Take a look at some link, maybe they help:Best match: http://www.biodiversidadvirtual.org/inse...http://www.almerinatura.com/galerias/ins...http://www.biodiversidadvirtual.org/inse...http://www.biodiversidadvirtual.org/inse...http://www.flickr.com/photos/agorca/5495...http://www.biodiversidadvirtual.org/inse...http://biocostagranadina.blogspot.ch/201...http://visualbv.blogspot.ch/2013/01/fami...
