Oxypoda (Baeoglena) nova BERNHAUER, 1902: 180   .

Type material examined: Lectotype, present designation: “Caucasus, Helenendorf, Reitter. / fusina Rey   / vid. Bernh. / caucasica Bh.   / ex coll. Skalitzky / Lectotypus

Oxypoda caucasica Bernhauer   , desig. V. Assing 2018 / Oxypoda caucasica Bernhauer   , det. V. Assing 2018” ( NHMW).

Comment: The original description is based on an unspecified number of syntypes from “Caucasus: Helenendorf, Martkopi, Meskisches Gebige [sic], Daghestan, Lenkoran ” ( BERNHAUER 1902). A male syntype from “Helenendorf ” is designated as the lectotype.

Diagnosis: Winged species of mostly dark and more rarely reddish coloration.

: median lobe of aedeagus ( Figs 55–56 View Figs 55–67 ) approximately 0.35 mm long; ventral process weakly curved in lateral view, apically truncate in lateral view and convex in ventral view; crista apicalis long and broad; internal sac with pair of fork-shaped apical structures (lateral view) and with a weakly curved and weakly sclerotized flagellum; apical portion of paramere ( Fig. 57 View Figs 55–67 ) relatively short, barely half as long as basal portion, rather weakly dilated basally.

: spermatheca ( Fig. 58 View Figs 55–67 ) with minute apical cuticular invagination.

Distribution and natural history: The distribution of O. caucasica   ranges from South Ukraine and Northwest Anatolia across North Anatolia, the Greater Caucasus, and the Lesser Caucasus (including adjacent regions) to North Iran ( Maps 1 View Map 1 , 7 View Map 7 ). The record from Germany in SCHÜLKE & SMETANA (2015) is based on LOHSE (1989: 231) “nach Angaben von L. Zerche”, who reports a male from the environs of Gotha collected in 1867. This specimen was clearly either mislabelled or misidentified, as can be inferred from the revised distribution of O. caucasica   .

The examined material was sifted from leaf litter, roots, moss, and bark in various forest (deciduous, coniferous, mixed) habitats and near streams. The altitudes range from 140 to 2350 m. The specimens were found in March (one record), April (2), May (26), June (27), July (37), August (1), and September (1).
