Pristiphora condei  Lindqvist, 1955b: 48-49. Holotype ♀ (DEI-GISHym20900) in MZH, examined. Type locality: Juupajoki, South Häme, Finland.

Similar species.

The most similar species is P. cincta  , which nearly always has a black supraclypeal area (pale in P. condei  ) and paler metatibia (usually more than half is pale in P. cincta  , half or less in P. condei  ). Longer postocellar area in P. condei  (1.5-2.5 times longer than diameter of lateral ocellus) can also distinguish it from at least females of P. cincta  (1.0-1.5 times longer).

Genetic data.

Based on COI barcode sequences, P. condei  forms its own cluster (no BIN number has been assigned yet) (Fig. 5). When considering only the barcoding region (658 bp), the distance between Estonian and Far Eastern (Primorsky Krai) specimens is 3.2%. A short sequence (380 bp; FISYN019-15) from a Finnish specimen (MHV00070) available in BOLD is identical to the Estonian. The nearest neighbour to P. condei  , diverging by a minimum of 8.44%, is BOLD:ACO1401 ( P. euxantha  ). Based on nuclear data, within species divergence is 0.1% (based on two specimens and both genes combined) and the nearest neighbour is 1.4% different ( P. wesmaeli  , only NaK).

Host plants.

Sorbus aucuparia  L. ( Lindqvist 1955b, Vikberg and Kangas 1980) and Amelanchier spicata  (Lam.) K. Koch ( Vikberg and Kangas 1980).

Rearing notes.

See Vikberg and Kangas (1980).

Distribution and material examined.

Palaearctic. Specimens studied are from Estonia, Finland, Russia (Primorsky Krai), and Ukraine.
