Other records and data on the species: Willemse (1980, 1984), La Greca (1959), Ruffo & Stoch (2005), Nadig (1986), Papapavlou & Katsouni (2008). Additional sound records by Schmidt are in DORSA/ SYSTAX.

Distribution: E. megastyla   is one of the most widespread species of the genus, its range covering continental Greece including Peloponnesus, some Ionian and western Aegean coastal islands (see maps in Willemse 1984, Willemse & Willemse 2004, Figure 239) as well as Central Italy on the western side of the Adriatic Sea.

Remarks: The species shows great variations especially in male characteristics such as emargination of last abdominal tergite, structure of cerci and its teeth, lobes of subgenital plate, length of styli, size and asymmetry of titillators, colouration and length of female ovipositor (also see Willemse, 1980). These variations have gradual tendencies and none of them corresponds to any geographic fragment. Consequently, one of such populations which was described as a separate taxon, Eupholidoptera kinzelbachi Harz, 1981   (for details see Nadig, 1986), is now placed in synonymy with E. megastyla   .

Recently Mofidi-Neyestanak & Quicke (2007) described two new Eupholidoptera species   , E. karatolosi   from Northern Greece and E. mirzayani   from Khuzestan, Iran. E. karatolosi   was described on the base of type material that all came from Ellinoprigos (probably Ellinopirgos), 39° 23' 59'' N, 21° 44' 8'' E, 600 m, situated within the range of E. megastyla   . E. karatolosi   also shows the typical characteristics of E. megastyla   in all structures of male and female genital morphology, especially the titillators with non-divergent unfused parts and indistinct lateral expansions of apical arms and slightly raised seventh sternum of female. From both the description by Mofidi-Neyestanak & Quicke (2007) and examination of the paratypes (1M, 1F) we decided that E. karatolosi Mofidi-Neyestanak & Quicke, 2007   is an objective junior synonym of Eupholidoptera megastyla ( Ramme, 1939)   .

The other species Eupholidoptera mirzayani Mofidi-Neyestanak & Quicke (2007)   does not belong to the genus Eupholidoptera   since it does not show the basic autapomorphic characters of the genus (see the section “Definition of Eupholidoptera   in Discussion). Mofidi-Neyestanak & Quicke (2007) did not discuss the relationship of their new species in respect to other Pholidopterini   . However, after examination of two paratypes (1M, 1F) we clearly identified them as Apholidoptera kurda (Uvarov, 1916)   which is distributed in a range around the borders between Turkey, Iraq and Iran. Since there are no clear differences between Eupholidoptera mirzayani Mofidi-Neyestanak & Quicke, 2007   and Apholidoptera kurda Uvarov   , the first has to be accepted as an objective junior synonym of the second.
