Quedius petraensis FAGEL, 1968a: 6   f.

T y p e m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Holotype ♂ [dissected prior to present study; aedeagus slightly damaged, transferred from microvial to transparent slide]: " Coll. R. I. Sc. N. B., Pétra. 3, Arabie, elytr. parcius punctatus, ex coll. Fauvel / Coll. et det. A. Fauvel, Quedius josue Saulcy, R.I.Sc.N.B.   17.479 / G. Fagel det., Quedius petraensis   n.sp. / Type / Quedius petraensis Fagel   , det. V. Assing 2018 " ( IRSNB).  

C o m m e n t: The original description is based on a unique male holotype from "Arabie: Pétra" ( FAGEL 1968c), a locality today situated in South Jordan, not in Saudi Arabia as indicated in SCHÜLKE & SMETANA (2015). Subsequent records are unknown. Externally, Q. petraensis   differs from the geographically close Q. josue   by the coloration (pronotum blackish with the margins narrowly reddish; elytra uniformly pale-reddish). The species is characterized particularly by the shapes of the apices of the median lobe and of the paramere of the aedeagus in ventral view ( Figs 66-68 View Figs 63-68 ).
