Material examined. MOROCCO: “ Singilis melillensis Esc. Tipo   ”, “ Melilla, XII.1909, Arias ” (Holotype, female, MNCN)   ; Melilla, XII.1909, Arias (1 ♂, MNCN)   ; Taurirt, B Sicar, Marruecos, A. Cobos leg. (14 ex., ISNB); Monte Arruit, Melilla, Marruecos, Pardo Alcaide (1 ex., ISNB)   ; “ S. melillensis   ab. unicolor   nov. ”, “Taurirt, B Sicar, Marruecos, A. Cobos leg.” (Holotype, male, ISNB); Axdir, B. Urriaguel, Rif , VI.1930. C.Bolivar (1 ♀, MNCN). Comments. This taxon was described as a distinct species from Melilla on the basis of specimens with very long pubescence ( Fig 3 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ). No other differential characters were found between this taxon and other populations. Therefore I propose to consider S. melillensis   as a subspecies of S. soror   . Aedeagus as in fig. 18.  

Distribution. Morocco ( Fig. 12 View FIGURE 12 ).
