Dasumia mariandyna Brignoli, 1979 

Dasumia mariandyna  : Brignoli, 1979: 312, f. 9-11 (D ♂♀).

Dasumia mariandyna  : Le Peru, 2011: 222, f. 240 (♂♀).

Material examined.

1 ♂ (AUZM) TURKEY, Düzce Province, Akçakoca District, c. 1 km south of Kepenç Village [41°4'11.89"N; 31°7'9.06"E], 22.V.2008, under leaf litter, leg. K.B. Kunt; 1 ♂ (AUZM), Bolu Province, Abant [40°40'39.36"N; 31°28'18.78"E], 13.IX.2009, under leaf litter, leg. K.B. Kunt.

Comparison of Dasumia gasparoi  sp. n. and Dasumia mariandyna  .

Brignoli defined the relation of Dasumia mariandyna  to other species of the genus as follows: "The new species is not related to the Greek and Near Eastern species; it can be easily distinguished from all known species by the genitalia" (see Brignoli 1979, page 313). Indeed, Dasumia mariandyna  can be easily distinguished by the copulatory organs from the Middle Eastern representative of the genus, Dasumia crassipalpis  and from Dasumia gasparoi  sp. n. which is very close to Dasumia crassipalpis  . Another very important issue is that the arrangement of cheliceral teeth in Dasumia mariandyna  clearly does not conform with the characteristic arrangement of cheliceral teeth in this genus. Nevertheless, Dasumia mariandyna  justlike Dasumia gasparoi  sp. n. and Dasumia crassipalpis  , also possesses 3 claws on tarsi III and IV. In accordance with the data mentioned above and by considering embolus/bulbus proportion of the species, the place of Dasumia mariandyna  in the subfamily Harpacteinae  should be rediscussed, for it is possible that Dasumia mariandyna  may belong to another genus.
