Hypaetha singularis (Chaudoir, 1876)


25. Hypaetha singularis (Chaudoir, 1876)  


Sandy seashores ( Abdel-Dayem et al. 2003).


Recorded in Egypt from May to August ( Abdel-Dayem et al. 2003, Matalin and Chikatunov 2016). In SMNHTAU are also specimens collected in September (own observation).

Distribution range.

From Egypt east of the Nile to the Arabian Desert (Oman, Yemen), also found in tropical Africa ( Werner 2000; Wiesner 1992).

Distribution in the southern Levant.

Only in southern Sinai ( Abdel-Dayem et al. 2003; Nussbaum 1987), from where the SMNHTAU records also originate ( Matalin and Chikatunov 2016). Ptashkovsky (2013) recorded the species for Israel, but no verifiable records are found in SMNHTAU, which includes the collection of Ptashkovsky.
