DISTRIBUTION IN TURKEY. — Artvin, Isparta, Sivas.

REMARKS

Collingwood & Heatwole (2000) reported that the general distribution of P.striaticeps  covers Turkey. Some other researchers also mentioned that the general distribution of the species included Turkey ( Borowiec & Salata 2012; Bračko et al. 2014). However, no physical record has been given so far within any study in the country till Karaman et al. (2017). Although P. nasuta ( Nylander, 1856)  was recorded from several localities in Turkey, recent studies showed that P. nasuta  is distributed in the western part of Mediterranea ( Borowiec 2014; Bračko et al. 2014; Galkowski et al. 2017). Therefore, we suggest here to exclude Turkey from the distributional range of P. nasuta  and all previously determined P. nasuta  material should refer P. striaticeps  .
