Velia (Plesiovelia) currens (Fabricius, 1794) 

Distribution. Holo-Mediterranean species. In eastern Morocco, it was recorded by Vidal (1937) at Debdou ( Fig. 5 View Figure ). Since then, it has been found only in the Middle Atlas in two localities ( Touabay et al. 2002). We did not study material of this species. However, its presence in Maghreb is unlikely because it is currently considered as a species limited to Italy and surrounding countries ( Cianferoni & Santini 2012).
