Platypalpus hemispinosus Grootaert, 1995  

Material examined. Nevşehir prov.: 1♂, 10 km E Nevşehir, Ortahisar env. garden, steppe, B. Mocek, 11.v.1996 ( CULSP).  

Remarks. This species is known only from the type locality in Spain. The specimen from Turkey slightly differs from the original description; specifically the legs are almost entirely black except light brownish red apical parts of fore and mid femora, fore and mid tibiae and bases of basitarsi. However, all other characters including peculiar bristling of the midlegs and genitalia are identical. This is the first record for Turkey.
