Hebrus franzi ( Wagner, 1957) 

( Fig. 65View FIGURES 65)

Neogaeus [sic] franzi Wagner, 1957: 201  . Holotype: ♂, Italy: Alpi Apuane , Stazzema env. ( ZMUH) (see Cianferoni et al. 2016). 

Distribution ( Fig. 65View FIGURES 65). Italy: Emilia-Romagna ( Cianferoni et al. 2016); Tuscany ( Wagner 1957; Servadei 1958, 1967, 1969; Cianferoni et al. 2016).

Comment. Tamanini (1979) expressed his doubts about the validity of this species. However, the identity of this exceptional apterous species was confirmed recently based on newly collected material ( Cianferoni 2015, Cianferoni et al. 2016).

Subgeneric placement. Cianferoni et al. (2016) mentioned that the antenna of H. franzi  is tetramerous, without distinct membranous subdivision of antennal segment IV. This would exclude H. franzi  from the subgenera Hebrusella  as well Hebrus  s. str. as defined by Poisson (1944). They commented that subgeneric division needs further study on a world-wide scale and phylogenetic context, and did not consider the subgeneric assignment of H. franzi  . We prefer to list this taxon as Hebrus  incertae sedis without subgeneric placement.
