Thank you very much for your time and visit. The picture was taken in early morning, but the day was very cloudy (after and before the storm). I know that this species is known from Italy. This specimen with some additional material was planned as first records of this species from Albania, but really a few months before my paper was published some Bulgarian entomologist noted M. melancholica as the first from this coutry based on only 1 specimen! Bad luck for me, even if my localities are the western-most records of this species from Albania :)
By the way, if you would be interested in some of my other papers about Cicindelidae, please feel free to visit here :)
Best greetings and thank you for your nice and interesting comment!
PS. One more thing, did you know that one of the best specialist in Cicindelidae is Italian - Fabio Cassola from Roma :>
