Platycleis (Squamiana) kurmana ( Ramme, 1951) 

( Figs. 92 View Figure , 243–247 View Figure )

Material examined. TURKEY: Muş, Malazgirt, Yaramış Köyü , 1620 m, 14.7.2013, 3 males, 2 females, plus 1 female in alcohol  ; Muş, Malazgirt, Karakaya Köyü, Top Dağı , 1600–2000 m, 14.7.2013, 2 males, 1 female, 2000–2380 m, 15.7.2013, 6 males, 7 females (all leg. M. Ünal & A. Erden) (AİBÜEM). 

Remarks. I identified “ Platycleis (Squamiana) irritans Ramme, 1951  ” from some photographs for the paper of Kemal & Koçak (2015). During the present description and comparison processes for 2 new species of this subgenus I have noticed that my previous identification was wrong. In fact, the photographs, habitat information and material data given in Kemal & Koçak (2015) belong to this species.
