Thank you for the specific

Thank you for the specific identification. I have added a photograph of another individual at the site that may be a male.

Additional individual

Yes, that one is a male haemorrhoidalis.

In some areas the males are almost black, rather than the reddish colour seen elsewhere - I found they were very dark on Sicily.
