status

 

Nemotelus nigrifrons Loew, 1846  

( Figs 1–5)

Published records. Cagliari prov.: Cagliari, Stagno di Santa Gilla, saline [= saltworks] ( Mason 2005). Carbonia-Iglesias prov.: Gonnesa, Palude Gonnesa ( Mason 2005).

Remarks. A species resembling N. pantherinus ( Linnaeus, 1758)   in the male terminalia, but well distinguished by the absence of frontal spots ( Rozkošný 1977, 1983). Recent records of this species from Sardinia are not surprising given its occurrence in Sicily ( Rozkošný 1983; Mason & Krivosheina 1995).

Distribution. Nemotelus nigrifrons   seems to be confined to the Mediterranean area, extending from Spain, Sardinia, Sicily and North Africa ( Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia) to Israel ( Rozkošný 1977, 2004).
