Anadolua davisi Karabağ, 1952 

( Figs. 225–230 View Figure )

Material examined. TURKEY: Anatolia, [İzmir], Ödemis Prov. ( Lydia ), Bozdag ( Tmolus ), 1300–1600 m, 16.8.1950, 1 male (holotype), 1 female (paratype) (leg. P.H. Davis) ( NHMUKAbout NHMUK)  .

Remarks. I concluded after this study on the rich material of A. burri  that this species is most similar to A. burri  , by most of the external characters such as head, pronotum, tegmina of both sexes, last tergite, the shape and length of ovipositor and somewhat the male cerci. It seems that the female subgenital plate is not in a natural form, is crushed like both of the type specimens. The only serious difference is the shape of titillator which is more similar to A. schwarzi  . Therefore it is retained as a valid species for now.
