Pella reuteri ASSING, 2008  

( Figs 46–47)

Material examined: Iraq: 1 , Amedi env., 1200 m, V.2007, leg. Reuter (cFel)   .

Comment: The original description of this species is based on two females from northern Iraq ( ASSING 2008b). The male sexual characters were previously unknown. Based on the above male, they are as follows: posterior margin of tergite VIII weakly concave in the middle; posterior margin of sternite VIII broadly convex; median lobe of aedeagus 0.72 mm long and shaped as in Figs 46–47   .

The male sexual characters are highly similar to those of P. ruficollis (GRIMM, 1845)   , except for the slightly longer ventral process of the aedaegus.
