It is difficult to say for sure. As usual, unfortunately, in very small scale. Noticeable blue glitter on those copies, and if so, it is not mopsus, and G. aciculatus - not less common in southern Kazakhstan views. Eugene, you have great pictures in fotohudozhestvennom respect, but the identification is not always suitable.
