O t h e r m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d 2 of Amara (Leiocnemis) abnormis TSCHITSCHERINE 1894   , labelled: " Asia minor   Biledjik v. Bodemeyer" / " Amara (Liocn.)   abnormis Tsch.   det. F. Hieke 1975" (MNHN, collection generale, genus Amara   , box no 36).

Recently, this taxon was placed among the incertae sedis species of Pterostichus   and treated as nomen dubium (CATPAL 1: BOUSQUET 2003d: 515). Study of the holotype revealed that it belongs to genus Amara   and is conspecific with Amara (Leiocnemis) abnormis TSCHITSCHERINE 1894   . The description of Gautier des Cottes was printed in Mitteilungen der Schweizer. Entomologischen Gesellschaft, Band 2, nr. 8 in February of 1868. Therefore, his taxon has priority over the taxon described by TSCHITSCHERINE (1894). For additional notes on the nomenclature of Amara abnormis   see HIEKE (2009).
