Phaonia errans or not?

I think this is a female Phaonia errans.  I know I can't see the Phaonia bristle, but is has the right general appearance ...!

It has no presutural acrostichals; mouthedge not protruding; 4 post-sutural dc; scutellum with yellow apex; no posterior bristle on front tibia; antennae black.  But the front femur is not darked much at all, at least the mainly visible part. Which leaves me bothered that this is wrong.

Any comments?
Thanks
Nigel G.

Thanks Stephane. smile

In fact I was re-thinking this one, and moving it towards being Phaonia angelicae as more likely. I shall move it back again!

Nigel.
