Mnestia cf. girardi

This species previously know as Mnestia sp. 01 on this site. Trond Oskars suggested the name Mnestia cf. bizona to us in 2016. Since that time Mnestia bizona has been synonymized with Mnestia girardi (Audouin,1826) therefore we have changed the name to Mnestia cf. girardi (11/11/2020).
