Ripiphorus Bosc, 1791


Genus Ripiphorus Bosc, 1791  

This genus is represented in the Arabian Peninsula by three (as far as known endemic) species: R. arabiafelix Batelka, 2009   and two undescribed species recorded from Yemen (Aden; Lahij) and Saudi Arabia (Abu Arish; Bahra), respectively ( BATELKA 2009). The number of available specimens of the latter two species does not allow me to understand their range of variability, and they should remain undescribed until more specimens will be available. Both undescribed taxa have been therefore excluded from the present study.
