DISTRIBUTION IN TURKEY. — Ankara.

REMARKS

After redescription and lectotype designation of T. semilaeve André, 1883  recent studies showed that distribution of this species is restricted to the Western Mediterranean area ( Borowiec et al. 2015). Borowiec et al. (2015) also confirmed that T. galaticum  is a distinct species from the T. semilaeve  , and suggested that probably most of T. semilaeve  records from North-eastern part of Mediterranean basin refer to T. galaticum  or other species of the T. semilaeve  complex.
