Pristiphora nigella ( Foerster, 1854)  Figs 34, 111, 115, 166, 294

Tenthredo ambigua  Fallén, 1808: 112-113. Primary homonym of Tenthredo ambigua  O.F. Müller, 1776. Lectotype ♂ (designated by Beneš et al. 1981) in MZLU, examined. Type locality: Sweden.

Nematus occultus  Förster, 1854a: 331-332. Lectotype ♂ (GBIF-GISHym3371; designated by Beneš et al. 1981) in ZSM, examined. Type locality: Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Synonymised with Lygaeonematus ambiguus  by Konow (1904a).

Nematus nigellus  Förster, 1854a: 328-329. Lectotype ♀ (GBIF-GISHym3361; designated by Beneš et al. 1981) in ZSM, examined. Type locality: near Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

Nematus furvescens  Cameron, 1876: 308-311. Syntype(s) possibly in BMNH, not examined. Type locality: East Dunbartonshire or Stirling ("old road between Milngavie and Strathblane"), Scotland, United Kingdom. Synonymised with Lygaeonematus ambiguus  by Konow (1904a).

Nematus obscurus  Zaddach in Brischke, 1884: 126. Primary homonym of Nematus obscurus  Norton, 1861 [= Euura obscura  (Norton, 1861)]. Syntypes possibly destroyed ( Blank and Taeger 1998). Type locality: Gdańsk [Danzig], Poland or Kaliningrad [ Königsberg], Russia. Synonymised with Lygaeonematus ambiguus  by Konow (1904a).

Nematus xanthomus  Zaddach in Brischke, 1884: 138. Syntype ♂ and ♀ possibly destroyed ( Blank and Taeger 1998). Type locality: Lüneburg, Lower Saxony, Germany. Synonymised with Sharliphora nigella  by Beneš et al. (1981).

Nematus obscurior  Dalla Torre, 1894: 246. Replacement name for Nematus obscurus  Zaddach, 1884.

Similar species.

The most similar species are P. amphibola  and P. parva  . In females, the shorter valvula 3 (see the Key) of P. nigella  enables its separation from P. amphibola  , but differences (slightly shorter valvula 3 and darker coloration) from P. parva  might not always be evident. Penis valves of P. nigella  , however, seem to show more reliable differences from P. amphibola  and P. parva  : in nigella  , the paravalva is ventrally abruptly narrowed before the valvispina (Fig. 294), while in other species the narrowing is more gradual (Figs 293, 295).

Genetic data.

Based on COI barcode sequences, P. nigella  belongs to the same BIN cluster (BOLD:AAF5120) as P. amphibola  (Fig. 5). Maximum distance within the BIN is 0.71% and minimum between species distance is possibly 0.00%. The nearest neighbour to BOLD:AAF5120, diverging by minimum of 2.26%, is BOLD:ABV9415 ( P. parva  ). Based on nuclear data, the nearest neighbour is 0.3% different ( P. parva  , only TPI).
