European Turkey. Josifov (1986a), Polhemus (1995e), Önder et al. (2006), Aukema (2009); this paper. First exact records from Turkish Thrace.

Asian Turkey. Poisson (1933, as N. glauca kervillei   , types), Gadeau de Kerville (1939, as N. glauca kervillei   and N. obliqua meridionalis   ), Hoberlandt (1952a, as N. glauca hybrida   (partim), N. obliqua obliqua   (partim), and N. obliqua meridionalis   ), Kanyukova (1973, as N. glauca meridionalis   ), Balık et al. (2006), Önder et al. (2006), Dursun (2011); this paper.

Turkey (not distinguished). Stichel (1955, as N. glauca hybrida   , N. glauca kervillei   , N. obliqua merdionalis   ), Kıyak & Özsaraç (2001), Kanyukova (2006, revised).

General distribution. Southern parts of western and Central Europe ( Great Britain [ Jersey?]), France, Andorra, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary), southern Europe ( Portugal, Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Albania, Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania), Ukraine (Crimea), Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Turkey ( Polhemus 1995 e, Carapezza 1997, Rabitsch & Zettel 2000, Gogala 2003, Papáček 2003, Kanyukova 2006, Soós et al. 2009, Kment & Beran 2011).

Comment. The supposed synonym, Notonecta glauca kervillei   , was described from Anatolia ( Poisson 1933). The status of Notonecta meridionalis   was for a long time in question. Kanyukova (1973) regarded it a subspecies of N. glauca   , whereas Zimmermann (1982) argued for its being a species based on sympatric occurrence with N. glauca   . Angus (2006) confirmed the species status of N. meridionalis   based on a study of the karyotype.

The 1 ♂ and 4 ♀♀ from ‘Mollafeneri’, identified by Hoberlandt (1952a) as N. glauca hybrida   , N. obliqua obliqua   , and N. obliqua meridionalis   , and 1 ♂ from locality ‘Çağırgan’ identified by him as N. obliqua obliqua   , belong in fact to this species. On the other hand, the specimens from ‘Suluhan’ identified as N. glauca hybrida   by Hoberlandt (1952a) belong in fact to N. maculata   . Some of the previous records of N. obliqua   from Turkey may belong to M. meridionalis   as well. See also the Identification under N. glauca glauca   .

Identification. Kanyukova (1973, 2006), Nieser et al. (1994), Soós et al. (2009).
