Stilbum westermanni  is related to Stilbum calens  Fabricius. Linsenmaier (1997a: 287, 1997b: 134, 1999: 254) confused the two species described by Dahlbom from Rhodes (wesmaeli and westermanni), and proposed the wrong combination Stilbum calens ssp. wesmaeli  instead of Stilbum calens ssp. westermanni  . According to Linsenmaier (1997b), this subspecies is more distributed along the coast of the Mediterranean basin.

Current status.
