Scotodrymadusa Ramme, 1939


Genus: Scotodrymadusa Ramme, 1939 

Scotodrymadusa maculata (Ebner, 1912) 

( Fig. 38 View Figure )

Material examined. TURKEY: Siirt, Hililan , 7.9.1952, 1 female (leg. Kosswig) ( NHMUKAbout NHMUK). 

Remarks. The unknown male of this species was recorded without any description by Sevgili & Çıplak (2000: 231) from Şanlıurfa (formerly Urfa) Province of Turkey. But in the revision of the genus Scotodrymadusa  carried out by Çıplak & Heller (2005: 321), the first paper was not cited and the male sex was shown as in “unknown” status although the same author has been placed in both papers. We still do not know the morphology and the taxonomic characters of the male sex of this distinct species. The female has a unique structure of subgenital plate for the genus. It would be very interesting to study the male which has had taxonomists wondering.
