Habitat was actually Mediterranean Maquis (sandy coastal heath-like habitat)
No interactions present.
Not Mutilla itself but certainly a female Mutillid! (check out the pattern of the golden hair on the abdomen)
Thanks Stuart I agree. I thought there was some variation in the precise pattern but overall this one seems very different and maybe closer to other mediterranean taxa such as Ronisia. R.ghilianii has a very similar pattern of white markings on the head as well as the abdomen. http://www.naturamediterraneo.com
