Questionable status. Aricidea (Aricidea) capensis  is usually reported from the Mediterranean as the subspecies Aricidea (Aricidea) capensis bansei  Laubier & Ramos, 1974, whereas Aricidea capensis  is considered to be restricted to South Africa. Arvanitidis (1994) refers the Greek records of Aricidea capensis  by Bogdanos and Satsmadjis (1983) and Karakassis (1991) to Aricidea (Aricidea) capensis bansei  . However, Aricidea capensis  is frequently reported from Greece at species level ( Simboura and Nicolaidou 2001) and Conides et al. (1999) report both Aricidea capensis  and Aricidea capensis bansei  in the same study.
