Podarkeopsis galangaui Laubier, 1961


Podarkeopsis galangaui Laubier, 1961 


Reported from Greece by Arvanitidis (1994) based on a single specimen. Type locality: Mediterranean (Banyuls-sur-Mer, France). Pleijel (1998) considers the species a junior synonym of Podarkeopsis arenicolus  (La Greca, 1946) but does not provide details and does not formalise the synonymy. As Rizzo and Salazar-Vallejo (2014) list both species in their key and recognise difference in the size of the eyes, length of the median antenna and chaetal details, the species is therefore treated as valid here, pending further information.
