status

 

Spiophanes bombyx ( Claparede, 1870) 

Notes

Species complex. At least four morphologically similar species exist ( Meißner and Blank 2009). All forms currently known have been formally described as different species in recent years. Specimens from the Turkish Aegean were studied by Meißner and Blank (2009) and found to belong to Spiophanes bombyx  , thus it can be assumed that at least some of the Greek material belongs to Spiophanes bombyx  sensu stricto. Type locality: Mediterranean (Gulf of Naples).
