Daniel (1965) described Notodonta ziczac derbendica  as a new subspecies and Schintlmeister (2008) specified its distribution (Caucasus, East Turkey, North Iran). However after studying large series from various localities preserved in MWM / ZSMAbout ZSM and PMM we hereby elevate this taxon to species status, N. derbendica  stat. nov.

N. derbendica  wings are wider and longer (forewing length male 21-24, wingspan 42-48 (n- 9); female forewing length 24-27 mm, wingspan 50-54 mm (n- 4 )), with a different discal patch than N. ziczac  (forewing length male 16-19, wingspan 37-45 (n- 16); female forewing length 19-23 mm, wingspan 40-48 mm (n- 3 )). N. derbendica  's male genitalia ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 9 – 15) differences include socii gradually narrowing to the tip, valvae not markedly widening in the middle, vinculum not extended in the saccus area, and a foot-shaped process. Its larger female genitalia ( Fig. 14View FIGURES 9 – 15) have wide papillae analis densely covered with cheta; apophysis anterioris five time shorter than apophysis posterioris; narrow antrum with bulge on one side, eighth tergit two times wider than in N. valeria  ; ventral plate has deeper incision than in N. ziczac  ; bursa copulatrix elongated; signum forming big plate ( Fig. 13View FIGURES 9 – 15).
