Notes to the literature data. Occurrence of two colour forms is a common phenomenon within the populations of this species. Based on these differences (variety of the coloration of the pronotum) Brunner von Wattenwyl (1882) describes Aphlebia marginata var. erythronota   and Drenski (1939) describes Aphlebia marginata meridionalis   . Later on, the latter is synonymized (Harz & Kaltenbach 1 976) but still Aphlebia marginata erythronota   is considered a valid taxon (according to the ICZN Article 45.6.3-4. 1999) ( Beccaloni 2016), though its conspecificity with Ph     . marginata has already been proposed (see Beccaloni 2016). Herewith, we comply with the latter statement and regard Aphlebia marginata erythronota   as junior subjective synonym of Ph. marginata   .

Distribution in Bulgaria ( Fig. 79 View FIGURE 79 ): Distributed in the lowlands of southern Bulgaria and along the Black Sea coast up to 600 m altitude. Inhabits the soil and leaf litter of xerothermic oak forests as well as open stony karstic habitats.

Studied material. 577 specimens (353 adults, 224 nymphs) and 6 oothecae.

General distribution. Ph. marginata   is distributed from the Apennine Peninsula, through the Balkans (reaching European Turkey). The species has limited distribution in Romania, Hungary and southern Ukraine   .
