Paraeumigus diversipes Uvarov, 1927


Paraeumigus diversipes Uvarov, 1927 

Material examined. Morocco, High Atlas, Dj. Tachdirt, ♂ paratype (MNCN).

This taxon, collected at 3,000 m a.s.l., following Uvarov (1927) differs from P. parvulus  mainly in the colouration of the hind legs. La Greca (1993) did not confirm the colour difference between the two species, but considered P. diversipes  ( Fig. 123View FIGURES 123 – 148. 123 – 145) as a valid species, much related to P. parvulus  , differing from it mainly for the shape of the phallic complex, which shows aedeagus valves more slender than that of the latter species, ending in a sub-acute angle ( Fig. 124View FIGURES 123 – 148. 123 – 145).
