Notes

This taxon is distributed mainly in Caucasia, Transcaucasia and the Balkan countries including the island of Rhodes, and its occurrence in Turkey has been known previously ( Crosskey and Zwick 2007). The first record from Anatolia was by Kazancı and Clergue-Gazeau (1990), as P. pronevitschae   , from three different lotic systems. Crosskey and Howard (2004) synonymized pronevitschae with rachiliense. Crosskey and Zwick (2007) reported this species from seven sites in northwestern and southeastern Anatolia. We identified our material as P. rachiliense   , using the illustrations and descriptions by Terteryan (1968) and Crosskey and Malicky (2001). Adler and Şirin (2014) chromosomally showed that populations in western Turkey are a cytoform of P. rachiliense   , probably different from true P. rachiliense   . We compared our larvae and pupae with the material in the study of Adler and Şirin (2014), and did not find structural differences.
