Is it possible to identify this Xorides female from the attached photos? I've not attempted Xoridinae previously, not sure which subgenus it belongs to... Could it be X. sepulchralis?

Size is ~16,5 mm (without ovipositor). Got this from another collector, it was found in Fredrikstad, Norway august 2011.

Thank you for confirming the identification! (species seems to be new to Norway, but is already know from Sweden and Finland according to Taxapad).
