Quedius (Raphirus) job   COIFFAIT, 1963 ( Map 3 View Map 3 )

Quedius job COIFFAIT, 1963: 415   ff.

Quedius   lydus FAGEL, 1968c: 193 f.; nov.syn.

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; most of median lobe of aedeagus missing; remainder of aedeagus transferred from microvial to transparent slide]: " Turquie, Güne Dag , X.1953, J. Brondeel / G. Fagel det., lydus n. sp. / Type / Quedius job Coiffait   , det. V. Assing 2018 " ( IRSNB)   . Paratypes: 1♂ [dissected prior to present study; paramere broken; aedeagus transferred from microvial to transparent slide]: "Samos, Kuruntere / G. Fagel det., lydus n. sp. / Paratype / Quedius job Coiffait   , det. V. Assing 2018 " ( IRSNB)   ; 1♀: "Anatolie, Manisa Dag / G. Fagel det., lydus n. sp. / Type / Quedius job Coiffait   , det. V. Assing 2018 " ( IRSNB)   .

A d d i t i o n a l m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Turkey: 1♂, Antalya, Manavgat env., Yaylaalan , 900 m, ravine, floated from debris on stream bank, 31.XII.1990, leg. Assing (cAss)   ; 1♂, Antalya, 25 km ESE Alanya, 36°32'N, 32°16'E, 900 m, litter of deciduous trees sifted, 23.XII.2006, leg. Assing (cAss). Lebanon: 2♂♂, 1♀, 30 km NE Beirut, Ibrahim river near Adonis, 5.III.2014, leg. Reuter (cFel) GoogleMaps   ; 1♀, 48 km NE Beirut, Chatine near Arz Tannourine , 1500 m, river bank, 29.IV.2014, leg. Reuter (cFel)   .

C o m m e n t: The original description of Q. job   is based on six males and seven females from " Liban: Nahr es Safa" ( COIFFAIT 1963), that of Q. lydus on a male holotype from "Anatolie égéenne: Güne Dagh", a male [sic] from "Anatolie égéene: Manisa Dagh", and two paratypes (a male and a female) from "Samos: Kuruntere" ( FAGEL 1968c). An examination of the type material of Q. lydus revealed that the paratype from "Manisa Dagh" is in fact a female, and the aedeagi of the two remaining male type specimens are damaged. The aedeagus of the male paratype from Samos is identical to that of Q. job   .

Quedius job   was reported from Turkey ("Bosburun-Gebirge im Pisidischen Taurus") by KORGE (1971a) and from the Greek islands Karpathos, Lesbos, and Samos by ASSING (2016a, b, 2017d). The currently known distribution is illustrated in Map 3 View Map 3 ; the doubtful locality "Samos, Kuruntere" ( FAGEL 1968c) is omitted from the map.
