pertinax

On tenax, the hind tibiae are completely dark and rather swollen with a thick fringe of hairs. Here, they are half pale. Added to the pale tarsi visible in the other picture, it is pertinax.

You should not repeat an ID in this situation. Just agree to it or do nothing. Otherwise the system would get impossibly cluttered.
