Ischnosoma thoracicum (EPPELSHEIM, 1880)

Comment: SCHÜLKE & SMETANA (2015) list I. thoracicum only for Georgia. According to KOCIAN (1997), who designated a lectotype, the type locality is “Helenendorf ” in Azerbaijan. Subsequent records have never been published, so that, based on currently available evidence, this species does not belong to the fauna of Georgia. However, there is a possibility that the lectotype was mislabelled (see comments in the sections on the I. spelaeum group, on I. myops , I. caucasicum , and I. major ), so that the true distribution of I. thoracicum requires confirmation.
