TRICHOBOTHRIAL AND PECTINAL TOOTH VARIATION.

The variation observed in one examined specimen (a juvenile) is given below.

Pectinal teeth: 6/7 (1).

Pedipalp patella trichobothria Pv: 7/7.

Pedipalp patella trichobothria Pe: et = 5/5; est = 4/4; em 4/4; esb = 2/2; eb a = 4/4; eb = 4/4.

COMMENTS. Euscorpius avcii was described by Tropea et al. (2012) from Dilek Peninsula (Aydın Province, Turkey). Subsequently, Parmakelis et al. (2013) recorded this species from Samos Island ( Greece). Phylogenetically, it is a part of the “ Euscorpius tauricus ” complex, which also includes the East Aegean species E. amorgensis , E. tauricus , E. curcici , and E. vignai ( Tropea et al., 2017; Fet et al., 2018).

E. avcii is characterized by the trichobotrial pattern Pv =7, et =5 to 6. Kinzelbach (1982) recorded a juvenile specimen from the Efes Ruins, identified as E. carpathicus . The specimen has Pv =7/7 and et =5/5 and completely matches the data reported by Tropea et al. (2012) for E. avcii . The Efes Ruins are very close to the Dilek Peninsula that has the closest Euscorpius population to Efes. The easternmost locality of E. avcii is 2 km south of Davutlar Town (Kuşadası District, Aydın Province), 25 km from the Efes Ruins.
