Mutillidae found dead (2010/09/12, Iberian Peninsula: Girona: Beuda, 400 masl)

Total lenghth about 8 mm
Flagellomera 1= 9 x 8
Flagellomera 2 = 16
(these numbers should be divided in 40 to obtain mm)
Ratio F1/F2= 0.56
Ratio F2/F1= 1.77
FI lenghth/wide= 1.12

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

1) Tegulae really short (ok SMICROMYRMINI)
2) Forewing: As shown in the picture the mesurements of distance between origin of RS on vein SC and base of stigmatic cell are equal (13/20=13/20: this don't drives to SMICROMYRMINI, sic Lelej, 2002 keys?, or did I measure wrong?)
3) Flagellomere 1 is 1.77 shorter than flagellomere 2 (ok SMICROMYRMINI)

SMICROMYRMINI
Mandíble not widened to the apex, with three teeth,

Skorikovia??
Smicromyrme, subgenus Astomyrme??


Thanks in advance for your reply,

Rafael

It's one of the species of Smicromyrme with that charecteristic wing venation, such as S. opistomelas
