Mutillidae from NE Iberia --> Physetoda ligustica

Mutillidae from NE Iberia --> Physetoda ligustica

I'm taking a look at my mutillid collection -mostly found dead animals- and trying to identify them with the Central Europe keys (Lelej & Schmid-Egger, 2005) and Palaearcitc genus keys (Lelej, 2002). Between them there's this one (Iberian peninsula: Catalonia: Beuda, 2006/07/27, 400 masl), that got me crazy :roll: :, if I want to go deep in the subfamily level.

Total lenghth=9.75 mm
Flagellomera 1= 15 x 10
Flagellomera 2: 17
(these numbers should be divided in 40 to obtain mm)
Ratio F2/F1= 1.13
Ratio lenghth/wide F1=1.5

MUTILLINAE:
Felt lines present
Inner eye margin with deep notch
First gastral segment wide

Tegula does not seem to be specially longer, and does not go far as the scuto-scutellar suture
One mandible is took out to show (inner side) the "special" shape: basally has a perpendicular "tooth" beneath, apically is broadened in three teeth.
Forewing: As shown in the picture the mesurements of distance between origin of RS on vein SC and base of stigmatic cell are equal (12/20=12/40)
Flagellomeres 1 (=15) and 2 (=17) are equal in lenghth?

Which subfamily and /or tribe could be?
Is that a Dentilla or Smicromyrme?

Thanks for your help

Rafael

As I got the italian keys (Pagliano & Strumia, 2007), it seems to be Physetoda ligustica
