Notes. Mlynář (1977: 68) cited M. dilatatus  for both the Macedonian and the Bulgarian parts of the Belasica Mt. All the subsequent authors followed uncritically his record. Intensive terrain investigations carried out in the two aforementioned sections of the mountain in 2008–2013 have not proved its occurrence there. Hence, the Mlynář’s data from Belasica Mt. remains very doubtful and the material on which it is based requires revision.
