Platypalpus zeravshanensis Barták & Shamshev, 2015  

Material examined. Aksaray prov.: 8♂, Tüz Golu lake , 60 km NW Askaray, steppe + bank of lake, B. Mocek, 13.v.1996 ( CULSP and MHK)   ; Mersin prov.: 2♂, 10 km E Mut, Bogcagiz , 800 m, pine f. [= forest] + pasture, B. Mocek, 1.v.1996 (MHK).  

Remarks. Specimens from Turkey slightly differ from those from Uzbekistan: they are darker (both basal antennal segments reddish yellow to reddish brown, legs darkened to various extent—mostly both fore and mid femora brown to black in basal two-thirds, some specimens also with darkened base of hind femur), and more lustrous (fore coxa lustrous up to anterior row of setae, katepisternal spot reaching nearly hind margin of katepisternum). However, all other characters including male genitalia are identical (including details of hypandrium, shape of cerci, and shape of right surstylus). These are the first records for Turkey.
