Old type catalogue. Weidner (1960), p. 63, No. 25. Paratypes (number not specified).

Collection remarks. The type locality “Djebel T’Kut, Gipfel” is uncertain and may refer to a mountain peak in the Gharyan Distirct south of Tripoli. The specimens were collected by the Austrian zoologist Bruno Klaptocz (1882–1908) during his expedition to Tripoli and Barka 1906 .

Additional remarks. Weidner (1960: 63) noted that the specimens were purchased from Verhoeff.

Current systematic position. Junior synonym of Orya barbarica (Gervais, 1835) according to Attems (1929: 110).
