Panurgus female

Panurgus female

At my place at the south of Pyrenees {Girona: Beuda}, I have found two male of Panurgus dentipes and one supposed female of Panurgus perezi.
The metasoma pilosity of the abdomen is similar in the three specimens, with long sipia-brown hairs covering most of the gaster.

Following Friese and also Dusmet keys for females, I got to P. perezi as it's written "depressions of abdominal terga not puntuated but with fine transverse stria" for P. perezi or "depressions punctuated but more finely in the depressions than in the bases" for P. dentipes.

As you can see in the picture, in the depressed part (apex of the tergum) there are som fine stria and also some (big) puntuation.

So, should I call this female P. dentipes? Or is it a clear P. perezi? Does anybody have a picture of female P. dentipes gaster to compare?

Thank you very much for your help!

The other characteristic used in the keys is the sculpture of the "metathoracic triangle", with short, unequal and not deeply marked stria
