Key to the Turkish species of Sunius   : supplement

Below, a supplement to the key to the Turkish Sunius species   in ASSING (2005b) is provided. Note that the erroneous reference to couplet 9 in couplet 1 of the original key should be replaced with a reference to couplet 10. The references to figures in previously published articles are abbreviated as follows: A05a = ASSING (2005a); A05b = ASSING (2005b).

1. Smaller species, size (normal preparation) usually <3.4 mm. Head noticeably wider than pronotum. Eyes less than half the length of postgenae in dorsal view. Forebody uniformly ferrugineous or testaceous. Abdominal tergite VII never with palisade fringe at posterior margin. : sternite VII not or only weakly modified; sternite VIII in posterior median area with densely pubescent tubercle, with conspicuous process, or without such modifications. Aedeagus often with spines, but without rod, in internal sac. Southern Anatolia. ......... 2

- Larger species, body size in normal preparation>3.0 mm. Head relatively smaller, approximately as wide as or narrower than pronotum. Eyes at least half the length of postgenae in dorsal view, in most species much larger. Forebody in most species bicoloured, with the head darker than the pronotum. Abdominal tergite VII with or without palisade fringe. : sternite VII more or less depressed posteriorly, often with darker, stouter, and diagonal pubescence in posterior median area; sternite VIII without tubercle. Aedeagus with long rod-like structure in internal sac. ................................................................................ 10
