Remarks. This species has been known up to present only from Norway. Our specimens agree with the original description in all details, except the male abdominal pattern could not be compared because it was not described: our specimens have a lustrous abdomen with all tergites broadly microtrichose on sides (more broadly than in P. pulicarius (Meigen, 1830))   and also sternites 6 to 7 microtrichose (sternite 8 lustrous to sublustrous—the same as in P. pulicarius   ). The male genitalia are almost identical with the original description, only the right cercus is slightly more broadened apically (about as depicted in P. pulicarius   by Chvála 1975, fig. 360) and right surstylus is long and narrow, straight, with small broadening about its base. This is the first record for Turkey.
