Platypalpus cryptospina ( Frey, 1909) 

= Tachydromia tantula Collin, 1926  .

Material examined. Muğla prov.: 2♂, Akyaka pasture, 8 m, 37°03′11′′N, 28°20′33′′E, Barták, Kubík, 27.iv.2016GoogleMaps  ; 1♂, Muğla, University campus SW + PT, 700 m, 37°09′42′′N, 28°22′21′′E, Barták, Kubík, 29.iv.–10.v.2013GoogleMaps  ; 1♂, Toparlar , 60 m, lowland wood, SW, 36°58′39′′N, 28°39′30′′E, Barták, Kubík, 5–7.v.2013 —all CULSPGoogleMaps  .

Remarks. This species is known from several European countries ( Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Leningradskaja obl.) and West Siberia. Specimens from Turkey have entirely yellow or slightly annulated tarsi similarly as P. aliterolamellatus Kovalev, 1971  ; however, other characters are closer to P. cryptospina  : large katepisternal spot, mesoscutum without yellowish tinge, mid and hind coxae darkened (one specimen even with brownish tip of hind femur), long setae on ventral side of left epandrial lamella, lustrous abdominal tergites 3 to 5, and closer-set crossveins. These are the first records for Turkey.
