This is a male species, which is able to fly. The females of the Omalisidae on the other hand are known for not being able to fly, because the Elytras and wings underneath are very underdeveloped - they look almost like Rove Beetles or Firefly females.
The O. fontisbellaquaei is the only member of the Omalisidae Family found in Central Europe.
