Hi Cosmin,

female of Hedychrum, possibly nobile (Scopoli) or niemelai Linsenmaier.

You have to examine the last sternite (the last visibile segment of the abdomen in ventral view) and compare the shape with these:

Yes,

I don't know why. Basically it has been described as H. aureicolle niemelai, but later always considered as a valid species by the most important author.

Be careful when you use Faunaeur.
It is correct, but unfortunately completely wrong about the distribution of the species.

For example, if you consider the most common European species (Trichrysis cyanea) on Faunaeur you can find that it is present only in Switzerland (!!!) :?

The same for Pseudomalus auratus (the other most common species): present only in Canary Is., Crete and Switzerland (!!!) :?
