Hello all .... I wonder if you can help with this one? I immediately thought E.tenax when photographing it, but on closer inspection, I don't think I have ever seen one with the thorax covered with white hairs like this, or a clear scutellum? Is this just a variation or a different species?

Thanks, Roger! But can you explain "expanted" for me? Smile

Sorry, Roger - I thought it was a technical term I was unaware of .... Very Happy
