Isophya camptoxypha (Fieber, 1853)


Isophya camptoxypha (Fieber, 1853) 

The species was described based on the material from the CR, Austria, Hungary and Turkey (Fieber 1853 in Heller et al. 2004). Location in the CR is commented by the author of description (Fieber 1853): “in Bohmens Vor- und Mittelgebirge auf grasigen Triften, Corylus avellana  .” Heller et al. (2004) studied lectotype of this species collected by Brunner von Wattenwyl and deposited in Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna. The specimen is located from Bohemia, but the authors (Heller et al. 2004) commented the localization as probably incorrect and presumed the range of the lectotype locality in Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine or Austria. The species is characteristic for the Carpathian Mountains (occurring in Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine and Romania), however, isolated populations occur in mountains of western and southern Hungary and reach Austria (Heller et al. 2004). Occurrence of I. camptoxypha  has not been verified in the CR during the last 150 years since its description, thus we can assume that it was recorded based on mislocated specimen.
