Euura prava (Konow, 1895)

Euura prava

The Scottish individuals identified by Knight and Liston differ from the Estonian lectotype and require further investigation. The head, most of the mesonotum and the mesopleura are heavily punctured. Broadly reddish-brown in colour but the antennae, spots on the ocelli and thorax, the mesonotum, the metapleura, and the dorsum of the abdomen are black.
