Glomeris europaea striata var. mohamedanica Attems, 1900: 303   (D).

Glomeris mohamedanica   – Schubart 1953: 218 (L).

Type material: Tunisia, Béja Gov., Medjez El Bab (now Mejez El Bab), date?, leg.?, ♁ lectotype (here designated) ( NHMW 3913), paralectotypes: 3 ♁, 2 ♀ ( NHMW 3913), 1 ♁ ( MNHN CC 153). The designation of a lectotype (from 350 syntypes, see Attems 1900) seems advisable in order to ensure that the name-bearing type shows the diagnostically important characteristics of the male sex   .

Other material: Tunisia, Béja Gov., Nefza (30 km of Béja), 2003, leg. N. Akkari, 1 ♁, 1 ♀ ( MNHN CC 153). Same locality, 36°57′61″N, 8°56′51″E, open area with scattered vegetation, under stones, 27.II.2004, leg. N. Akkari, 3 ♁, 5 ♀, 3 juv. ( MNHN CC 153). Same locality, 2.X.2005, leg. N. Akkari, 1 ♁, 3 ♀ ( NMNH)   . Tunisia, Jen-

Akkari, 10 ♁ ( MNHN CC 153), 3 ♁ ( ZMUM), 2 ♁ ( NMNH), 2 # ( FMNH). Same locality, alt. approx. 500 m, 19.II.2007, leg. N. Akkari, 2 ♁, 2 ♀ ( ZMUC 200113).
