Eumerus persicus Stackelberg, 1949  

Diagnosis (based on Stackelberg 1961)

Female

Eyes almost bare; face and frontal triangle shiny black, without polinosity; antennae reddish-orange, basoflagellomere oval; scutum and scutellum shiny black, without median pollinose vittae; metafemur distinctly enlarged, mostly orange with exception of black apex; metatibia black; wing hyaline; abdomen predominantly orange.

Male

Unknown.

Material examined

We had no access to any specimen of this species, which was originally described and is exclusively known from Iran (type locality: Tehran prov., Damavand).

Remarks

We failed to collect any specimens of this species during this study and our attempts to access the type material were not fruitful. Based on its diagnostic characters, original description ( Stackelberg 1949) and the identification key ( Stackelberg 1961), this species is readily separated from other Iranian species studied through this research.
