I am happy that there are some members who know insects- and because my knowledge is absolutely near cero, I ask for the names, please!

1 - unclear, could be Tetralonia berlandi
2 - Cerambyx? the hair is puzzling though. look at the thread started by RB for more info
3 - Megascolia flavifrons
4 - probably Oxythyrea funesta
5 - Scarabeus variolosus

Footnote:

When I created these fauna ID sections, I believed it was a simple matter as plants, where photos are enough for a concise ID of the specis. While this is true in roughly 80-90% of the ID cases for pants, for fauna, especially insects, this might be valid for 40% of the species. I learnt that to identify certain insects, one has to have a specimen in one hand and a lens in the other becasue the minute differences are rarely observable in photos.

However no harm is done by posting fauna IDs and soon I will be posting my version of JP/KB's photo 1 :wink:
