Remarks. The species was hitherto known from three records from Eastern Rhodopi Mountains ( Strasser 1966, 1973; Stoev 2004a), the present specimens are found some 90–130 km NNE of that area. The gonopods show some slight variations in comparison with the original drawings, particularly a deeper and more pointed bifurcation of the lateral coxal process.
