Platypalpus annulitarsis Kovalev, 1978  

Material examined. Czech Republic: Podyjí NP, Široké pole, meadow + river corridor 270 m, 48°51′30′′N, 15°51′01′′E, MT, Barták, Kubík , 2.vii.–9.viii.2003 ( CULSP, previously published by Barták et al. 2005) GoogleMaps   ; France: 2♂, Luz-Saint-Sauveur, pasture nr. brook 630 m, 42°53′47′′N, 0°01′42′′W, 12–13.vii.2009, SW ( CULSP) GoogleMaps   ; Turkey: Hatay prov.: 3♂, 6♀, 20 km W Antakya, Çevlik , undecidouous [= evergreen] forest, B. Mocek, 3.v.1996 ( CULSP, MHK)   .

Remarks. The Turkish specimens of P. annulitarsis   have a yellow postpedicel and abdomen and is identified in the key by Grootaert & Chvála (1992) as P. villeneuvi ( Becker, 1910)   . The latter species was redescribed by Grootaert & Chvála (1992) on the basis of a female holotype from Corsica. Males remain unknown and therefore it is impossible to formally synonymize both species unless additional material from the type locality, including males are collected. Turkish specimens agree in all details with the original description of P. anulitarsis (Kovalev 1978)   (including details of the male genitalia, midtibial spur, etc.) except size, colour of abdomen and shape and colour of antenna. These are the first records for Turkey.

For clarity, all differences between specimens from France and Turkey, redescription of P. villeneuvi   by Grootaert & Chvála (1992) and the original description (Kovalev 1978) of P. anulitarsis   are summarized in Table 1.
