Quedius (Raphirus) kirklarensis   KORGE, 1971

Quedius (Sauridus) kirklarensis   KORGE, 1971a: 52 f.

Quedius (Sauridus)   drannazensis COIFFAIT, 1978b: 171.

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; median lobe of aedeagus broken]: " Anatolia bor., leg. H. Korge / 2000 m, 23.V.1964, Çamlik s. Rize / ♂ - Holotypus Quedius kirklarensis Korge   / Quedius kirklarensis Korge, A. Solodovnikov   det. 2000" ( MNB).  

C o m m e n t: The original description of Q. kirklarensis   is based on a unique male holotype from "Kirklar-Dağlari oberhalb des Dorfes Çamlik" ( KORGE 1971b), that of Q. drannazensis on a unique male from "Drannaz Dag" ( COIFFAIT 1978b). Quedius kirklarensis   was revised by SOLODOVNIKOV & ŠTOURAČ (2002), who also established the synonymy with Q. drannazensis. The species is distinguished from all other Raphirus   species with an impunctate scutellum by its small size (approximately 6.0 mm) in combination with completely reduced hind wings and the absence of a palisade fringe at the posterior margin of the abdominal tergite VII. The aedeagus is similar to that of Q. limbatus   .
