This brings the number of Hemidendroides  species to four. Like H. daglariensis  , H. ledereri  is also known from Turkey, while Hemidendroides peyroni Reiche  was described from Syria. The fourth species, Hemidendroides davidis (Fairmaire)  , from Moupin, China, was provisionally transferred to Hemidendroides  from Pyrochroa  by Blair (1914). I have not seen specimens of either H. peyroni  or H. davidis  ; their inclusion in the following key follows information in the original descriptions as well as that presented by Blair (1914).
