European Turkey. Hoberlandt (1952a, also as S. arenicola   f. connectens and f. simulator, partim; revised!), Josifov (1986a), Lindskog (1995), Önder et al. (2006), Aukema (2009); this paper.

Asian Turkey. Lindberg (1922b), Drake & Hoberlandt (1952), Hoberlandt (1952a, also as S. arenicola   f. connectens and f. simulator, partim; revised!), Seidenstücker (1964), Önder et al. (1981, 2006), Lindskog (1995), Şerban (2010); this paper.

Turkey (not distinguished). Cobben (1960), Péricart (1990, as revised), Kıyak & Özsaraç (2001).

General distribution. Widely distributed in most of European countries, North Africa, Asia from Cyprus and Anatolia to Yemen, Afghanistan, China (almost all territory), and East Siberia, as well as in the Afrotropical Region ( Lindskog 1995; Lukashuk 1997; Protić 1998; Coulianos 2005; Gogala 2008; Vinokurov, pers. comm.).

Comment. The following specimens misidentified as S. arenicola   by Hoberlandt (1952a) belong in fact to S. palustris   : 13 ♂♂ 9 ♀♀ of S. arenicola   f. simulator from ‘AkŞehir Gölü’, 10 ♂♂ 9 ♀♀ of S. arenicola   f. simulator from ‘Moğan Gölü’, and 1 ♂ of S. arenicola   f. simulator from ‘Sivrihisar’ (P. Kment revid.). A single female of S. arenicola   f. nigripes from ‘Kızılcahamam’ ( Hoberlandt 1952a) is in fact S. pallipes   (P. Kment revid.).

Identification. Cobben (1960), Péricart (1990), Linnavuori & Hosseini (2000), Vinokurov (2004).
