status

 

Hebrus (Hebrus) pusillus pusillus (Fallén, 1807)   ( Hebridae   )

= H. pusillus   f. rufescens Rey, 1893

European Turkey. Oshanin (1908), Josifov (1986a), Andersen (1995), Aukema (2009).

Asian Turkey. Lindberg (1922b), Linnavuori (1986: 41, drawing of scutellum of specimen from Turkey: İskenderun), Andersen (1995), Önder et al. (2006), Kıyak et al. (2008).

Turkey (not distinguished). Stichel (1955), Nieser & Moubayed (1985), Kıyak & Özsaraç (2001).

General distribution. The nominotypical H. p. pusillus   is widely distributed throughout Europe and across Russia up to the Far East, and also in North Africa ( Andersen 1995; Kanyukova 1997, 2006; Protić 1998; Chavanon et al. 2004, Gadalla & Saleh Ahmed 2005). Linnavuori & Hosseini (2000) recorded H. pusillus   from Iran (Gilan). According to Kanyukova (1997, 2006), the records from south-western Asia ( Anatolia, Israel, Syria – Andersen 1995; Sinai – Gadalla & Saleh Ahmed 2005) need confirmation. Records from Caucasus, Central Asia, and most records from Crimea belong to other species ( Kanyukova 1997, 2006). Hebrus pusillus arabicus Linnavuori, 1971   occurs in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the United Arab Emirates and Sudan ( Andersen 1995, Linnavuori et al. 2011).

Comment. All the Hoberlandt’s (1952a) records of H. pusillus   and H. pusillus   f. rufescens belong in fact to either H. montanus   or H. pilipes   (see above). Populations of both H. pusillus   and H. montanus   from Mediterranean and Near East require taxonomic revision.

Identification. Kanyukova (1997, 2006).
