Comment: FAIRMAIRE & LABOULBÉNE (1856) described Oxypoda planipennis from an unspecified number of syntypes collected in "H.-Pyr., vallée de Campan". The name is a primary homonym and was subsequently replaced with the nomen novum O. platyptera by FAIRMAIRE (1859). Two male syntypes were located in the Bernhauer collection at the FMNH. Oxypoda platyptera was moved to the subgenus Thliboptera by ASSING (2009).

In the Palaearctic catalogue ( SMETANA 2004), O. platyptera is listed only for Italy, although it was described from France. GAMARRA & OUTERELO (2005) report the species from four Spanish provinces. As can be inferred from the material examined, O. platyptera is widespread and fairly common in the Iberian peninsula. The specimens from Portugal represent new country records. The distribution is mapped in Map 1 View Map 1 .
