Recently described species known from Russia (South European Territory), Ukraine (Crimea); Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran (provinces Khorāsān and Māzandarān), Kazakhstan (Asian part), Tadzhikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan ( KANYUKOVA 1997, LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI 2000, LINNAVUORI & MODARRES 1998). Specimens published by HOBERLANDT (1952) from Alahan (as H. pusillus   f. rufescens Rey, 1893) and K i z i lviran (as H. pusillus   ) also belong to H. pilipes   . Biology and ecology of H. pilipes   is unknown. KIRITSHENKO (1964, misidentified as H. pusillus   and H. montanus   – see KANYUKOVA (1997)) collected it on a stream bank in Karatag ( Tadzhikistan). HOBERLANDT & TÁBORSKÝ (1948) described the Turkish localities as a mountain spring led into a stone cattle trough (K i z i lviran) and a mountain spring forming a swamp covered with Carex   sp. (Alahan). HOBERLANDT (1974) characterized locality No. 109 near Erdemli as a costal sandy zone of Mediterranean Sea with the mouth of a brook with brackish water with reed and Pennisetum purpureum K. Schumach.   stands. We collected it on the shores of the marshes near Tödürge Gölü lake (situated on gypsum, having high water conductivity and reed vegetation along shores), in an oxbow lake in the aluvium of a large mountain river in Tunceli, and in fields near Erdemli in a small puddle fed by a leaking irrigation pipe. According to these observations, H. pilipes   seems to be a quite euryecous species in Turkey, inhabiting different types of water bodies both in inland Anatolia as well as on the southern Mediterranean coast. New species for Turkey.
