johannis

Red rear tibiae is a feature shared with other species flying commonly now, like lanigerus and varipes (to a lesser degree). johannis has a clear black stigma and black body hairs, where the other species have a brown stigma and pale hairs often. It's difficult to be sure of those features here, though you may be right.
