Parapholidoptera indistincta ( I.Bolívar, 1899)  sp. rev.

( Figs. 296–299 View Figure )

Parapholidoptera intermixta Karabağ, 1961b: 111  syn. nov.

Material examined. TURKEY: [Kahramanmaraş], Bimbogha-Dagh, 2 males, 3 females; Jenidje , 1 male, 1 female; Marache [Kahramanmaraş], 7 males, 3 females (all of them syntypes) ( MNCNAbout MNCN)  . Kahramanmaraş, Göksun, Kurucaova Köyü, Anten yolu, 1530–1610 m, 6.7.2009, 1 male, Anten, 2030 m, 6.7.2009, 1 female (leg. M. Ünal) (AİBÜEM). 

Remarks. I. Bolívar (1899) described this species from Bimboğa Dağı in Kahramanmaraş Province as Olynthoscelis indistinctus  . Ebner (1919: 157) synonymized it with P. signata  in the genus Pholidoptera  . The subsequent authors followed Ebner ( Ramme 1930; Karabağ 1958; Çıplak 2000). But, Karabağ (1952a: 34) describing P. grandis  , compared and illustrated this species as Pholidoptera indistincta  . Later, Karabağ (1961b) described Parapholidoptera intermixta  from Sarız, Binboğa Dağı, in Kahramanmaraş Province. He compared his new species with P. signata  and P. noxia  , but not with P. indistincta  in spite of the same type locality. The reason for overlooking this is probably the synonymic state of this species with P. signata  . After my comparisons of all these taxa I have concluded that P. indistincta ( I.Bolívar, 1899)  ( Figs. 296–299 View Figure ; the photographs of the types in Cigliano et al. 2018) is a different species from P. signata (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1861)  ( Figs. 288–291 View Figure ) and it is senior synonym of P. intermixta Karabağ, 1961  (see the photographs of the types in Cigliano et al. 2018).
