Poecilimon ionicus   variety cretensis Werner (1903)   : 67.

Type information. Unspecified primary type; Greece, Crete ( NMW).

Description. See Willemse (1982) in addition to data here.

Material examined. GREECE: 1 M, Kreta, 1986, leg. C. Hartley ( CH: CH 0117) (sound record); 3 MM, 2 FF, Kreta, Chania, Chora Sfakion, 35.205o N, 24.154o E, 100 m, 25.v.2016 GoogleMaps   , leg. Martina Heller ( CH: CH 8218- CH 8221, CH 8225) (sound record); 1 M, 2 FF, Kreta, Rethimni, Monastery Preveli , 35.153465o N, 24.454227o E, 1– 31.v.1993 GoogleMaps   , leg. K. Rohrseitz ( CH; CH 3033- CH 3035); 4 MM, 3 FF, Kreta, Rethimni, Mt. Ida , near spring of Skaronero (above Kamares), 35.191o N, 24.812o E, 1800 m, 29.vii.2007 GoogleMaps   , leg. M. & K.- G. Heller ( CH; CH 6946- CH 6951) (sound record); 2 MM, 1 F, Kreta, Rethimni, Skaleta 35.369o N, 24.610o E, 200 m, 26.v.2016 GoogleMaps   , leg. M. Heller ( CH; CH 8222- CH 8224) (sound record); 1 F. Kreta, Rethimni, Eleftherna , 35.322o N, 24.660o E, 23.v.2016 GoogleMaps   , leg. M. Heller (CH; CH8221) (sound record).

Remarks. This species is known from the island of Crete and the neigbouring islet Gavdos ( Tilmans 2002). The record from the island of Naxos is probably based on a mislabelling (see Willemse & Heller 2001). It is most similar to P. martinae   and P. inflatus   as discussed in morphology and acoustic part. Its relatives in Anatolia exhibit a high diversity in a narrow area, thus, re-examination of specimens from Crete and other islands may allow us to discover a rich diversity here as observed in some other Orthoptera ( Çıplak et al. 2010)   . The previous records given in Willemse (1984) were also marked in the distribution map.
