Platycephala rugosa ( Nartshuk, 1964) 

Eurina rugosa Nartshuk, 1964: 322 

Described from Kazakhstan and recorded from Iran this species has the hind femur narrower than is usual amongst species of Platycephala  . The larva develops in Phragmites australis  . At my request Dr. Nartshuk kindly dissected a female rugosa  and found it to be monoovariolate. The male terminalia as figured in the original description and later by Andersson (1977: 128) are very similar to those of scapularum  .
