Notes

According to Crosskey and Zwick (2007), Simulium auricoma  is spread through southern Europe from the Iberian to the Aegean islands, such as Lesbos and Rhodes, and occurs in mountainous areas. They reported it from Turkey for the first time and emphasized that it shows wide variation in the length, taper and spread of the filaments. Crosskey and Malicky (2001) noted that gill filaments vary from short, stubby, and minimally tapered, to long and gradually tapered; in all forms, the lowermost filament tends to diverge downward from the others. The filaments of our pupae from the two sites are short, stubby, and minimally tapered. The cocoon and genitalia characters of pharate males conform to the description by Crosskey and Malicky (2001).
