Notes

The most diagnostic character of Simulium variegatum  is the presence of two large thoracic bulges (patagia) near the pupal gill bases. We observed this feature in all specimens collected from 11 sites. This species is widely distributed in Turkey ( Crosskey and Zwick 2007) and also common over most of Europe, western Asia and North Africa ( Adler and Crosskey 2015).
