Aricidea (Strelzovia) mediterranea (Laubier & Ramos, 1974)


Aricidea (Strelzovia) mediterranea (Laubier & Ramos, 1974) 

Aedicira mediterranea  Laubier & Ramos, 1974


The species was described as including two different morphological forms (based on antennal shape) by Laubier and Ramos (1974) from the Western Mediterranean. Aguirrezabalaga and Gil (2009) revised the species and split Aricidea (Strelzovia) mediterranea  into two species based on these forms, Aricidea (Strelzovia) mediterranea  and Aricidea (Strelzovia) sardai  Aguirrezabalaga & Gil, 2009. The records from Greece could belong to either of the two species and require further examination.
