Tachydromia   sp. nr. alatauensis Shamshev & Chvála  

Material examined. Adıyaman prov.: 1♂: Nemrut Daglari Mts., 30 km NE Kahta, Karadut , 1800 m, B. Mocek, 9.v.1996 ( CULSP).  

Remarks. Similar to T. alatauensis Shamshev & Chvála, 2001   , in having dark halter, very shallow and almost indistinct excavation on mid femur, and lustrous occiput; however, basal antennal segments are red (distinctly paler than postpedicel), palpus brownish black, basal third of fore and mid femora yellow, and fore and mid tarsus with segments 1–3 distinctly paler than remaining two. Male genitalia are identical with T. alatauensis   . There are further two species of Tachydromia   with dark halter: T. halterata ( Collin, 1926)   (with deep excesion on mid femur) and T. israeliensis Shamshev & Grootaert, 2009   (with microtrichose occiput and different genitalia). We cannot describe this male specimen as a new species because of its poor condition (large setae missing, right stylus probably broken and left postpedicel missing).
