Nabis (Nabis) ferus (Linnaeus, 1758)
status

 

[ Nabis (Nabis) ferus (Linnaeus, 1758)   ]

General distribution. Euro-Siberian species, reaching to Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan ( KERZHNER 1996).

Comment. The record of Nabis ferus   from Keredj (= Karaj) near Tehran by LINDBERG (1938) was considered doubtful by KERZHNER (1987) and subsequent revision ( KERZHNER 1988) revealed its identity as N. punctatus   . Also the records from Hamedan (MIRAB- BALOU et al. 2007a,b, 2008; RASOULIAN et al. 2007), for which N. ferus   is the only species mentioned, cannot be accepted without revision. GHARAAT et al. (2009) listed two localities from West Azerbaijan, claiming erroneously that the specimens were identified or revised by R. Linnavuori. Currently, there is no verified record of N. ferus   from Iran; see also LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI (2000).
