Pronomaea flavirostris SEMENOV   ,, 2003 ( Fig. 51 View Figs 44-51 , Map 5 View Map 5 )

Pronomaea flavirostris SEMENOV, 2003: 201   f.

Comment:

The original description is based on three type specimens from "Rayon Moskowskij" near Kuljab , Tajikistan. The type material was not examined, but the detailed illustration of the aedeagus provided by SEMENOV (2003) leaves no doubt that it is conspecific with the material listed below   .

Material examined:

Tajikistan: 1 ex., Kuliab, Aksu valley , 1898, leg. Hauser ( FMNH)   ; 1 ex., Hissar mts. , 1898, leg. Hauser (cAss)   ; 4 exs., Dushanbe, Romit valley , 18.VII.1984, leg. Wrase (cVog, cAss)   ; 7 exs., Seravshan mts. , S Panjakent, Rudaky, 1500 m, 11.VII.1990, leg. Schülke & Wrase ( DEI, cSch, cAss)   ; 3 exs., Pamir Alai, Hissar mts., N Dushanbe, Adshuk cleft near Varzob , 1200 m, 1.-3. VII.1990, leg. Schülke & Wrase ( DEI, cAss)   ; 9 exs. [partly teneral], Pamir Alai, Dushanbe, Rommit valley , 2000 m, 18.VII.1984, leg. Behne ( DEI, cAss)   ; 3 exs., Hissar mts. , 1898, leg. Hauser ( NHMW, cAss)   ; 1 ex., Karateghin mts., Saripul ["Sary-Pul", 38°25 'N, 70°08 'E], 1482 m, 1898, leg. Hauser ( NHMW) GoogleMaps   ; 1 ex., Gorno Badakhshanskiy Autonomous Oblast, Rushanskiy mts. , near geologists´ camp, 2200 m, 21.V.1982, leg. Mikhailov   (cSch).

Afghanistan: 1 ex., Tangui Gharou ["Tang-Gharou"; 34°33 'N, 69°30 'E], 6.VIII.1959, leg. Lindberg ( NHMW) GoogleMaps   ; 1 ex., Qadès, "Grotte", 1350 m, 30.VI.1959, leg. Lindberg (cAss).

Diagnosis:

External characters similar to that of P. picea   , except for the slightly less convex pronotum (crosssection). Reliably identified only based on the sexual characters.

♂: aedeagus larger (0.45-0.48 mm long); median lobe at base of ventral process without projection and not bulging ( Fig. 51 View Figs 44-51 ).

♀: spermatheca of similar shape as that of P. anatolicaanatolica   and P. khnzoriani   ; for an illustration see figure 16 in SEMENOVSEMENOV (2003).

Comparative notes:

The species is reliably separated from other Western Palaearctic and Middle Asian congeners only based on the morphology of the aedeagus.

Distribution and bionomics:

The species was previously known only from Tajikistan (SEMENOVSEMENOV 2003). It is here reported from Afghanistan for the first time ( Map 5 View Map 5 ). The species has been collected at altitudes of up to 2200 m during the period from May through August; teneral adults were observed in July. According to SEMENOVSEMENOV (2003), the type specimens were collected on a stream bank   .
