Remarks. This species was previously known only from Austria and Czech and Slovak Republics. Specimens from Turkey (T) differ slightly from central European mountain populations (CE) in having legs entirely dark yellow (with brownish to brownish black markings of various extent on femora in CE). Additionally, the shape of the cerci slightly differs, the T specimen has no interapical tooth on both cerci and the female abdomen is almost entirely microtrichose (with broad lustrous median triangles on tergites 2–6 in CE). Other characters including all details of genitalia are identical (including basal sclerotization of left epandrial lamella and asymmetrical tergite 8). Setae around left epandrial lamella are longer than depicted by Chvála (1989, fig. 42, in both T and CE). These are the first records for Turkey.
