POECILIMON EGRIGOZI ÜNAL, 2005 STAT. NOV.

Poecilimon luschani egrigozi Ünal, 2005: 440 , 441.

Type information: Holotype – male; Turkey – Kütahya, Emet, Eg˘ rigöz Mountain (Collection of M. Ünal in Abant İzzet Baysal University, Bolu-Turkey) ( Ünal, 2005).

Material examined: See Table 1.

Description: For morphology see Table S1, Figures 7 View Figures 4–21 , 25 View Figures 22–29 , 33 View Figures 30–47 , 51 View Figures 48–65 , 69 View Figures 66–73 ; for song see Table 2 and Figures 77 View Figures 74–81 , 82–84 View Figures 82–84 . Additional description can be found mainly in Ünal (2005) and Sevgili et al. (2011).

Distribution: According to the present data, this species is restricted to the alpine zone of the Egrigoz Mountain in the Kütahya Province of Turkey ( Fig. 1 View Figure 1 ). Remarks: Ünal described this population as a subspecies under P. luschani . The present data show prominent differences between this population and the other members of the group. An apically widened cercus is shared by P. orbelicus and P. helleri sp. nov. However, cercal structure still exhibits some specific aspects. In addition, the male’s subgenital plate with no or indistinct incision is typical for P. egrigozi and P. orbelicus . More importantly, the molecular phylogeny, based on sequences of two different markers, suggested the species′ close relationships with P. helleri sp. nov. and also its independence as a reproductive unit. Therefore, we consider it as an independent species.
