Re: Sepsis fulgens?

There are 2 large bristles behind the median group on the front femur; S. fulgens generally has only 1. I'd suggest S. punctum is more likely, but I wouldn't be at all certain from this image.

Re: Sepsis fulgens?

S. fulgens generally has darker legs, my money would be on S. punctum too.
