Is the Servicecall stereotype actually applied to the instance of

This is the general way to access the attributes of applied stereotypes,
Do you get a different result if you try this formulation?

The fact that the referenced Service is, itself, a stereotype instance
One handy way to debug problems like this is to turn on evaluation
tracing. Enable the org.eclipse.ocl/debug/evaluation debug option and
see in the console output what is the first sub-expression that
evaluates to OclInvalid, and trace it back (usually to null values) to
see what is the cause.
