Belomicrus stecki   maroccanus DE BEAUMONT, 1957: 157. H o l o t y p e ♀, Morocco: Mehdia near Kenitra (coll. Museum Lausanne). M a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Morocco: 1♂ 20.v.2019 RK, Bouknadel 34.0634N 6.6278E 136m

R e m a r k: B. maroccana   was described as subspecies of Oxybelomorpha stecki (KOHL, 1923)   in the genus Belomicrus   . ANTROPOV (2006) transfered both taxa to the genus Oxybelomorpha   and raised O. maroccana   to rank of a valid species. The present specimens were collected near the type area. Squamae and mucro looks similar in both species ( fig. 8 View Figs 1-8 ). G e o g r a f i c d i s t r i b u t i o n: Western Morocco, all records come from close to the type area ( ANTROPOV 2006).
