Xantholinus (Helicophallus) chersonesicus   ASSING, 2007

The record of this flightless species is of particular zoogeographic interest. It was previously known only from the type locality, the Gelibolu peninsula, Çanakkale, northwestern Turkey ( ASSING 2007b). Not only do the specimens listed in Tab. 1 represent the first records from Greece and since the original description, these records also confirm a land connection between Samothraki and Northwest Turkey.
