Lepidasthenia maculata Potts, 1910 


Questionable status. Easily confused with Lepidasthenia brunnea  Day, 1960, therefore Barnich and Fiege (2003) consider the records of the species in Europe doubtful. The authors also refer the description of Lepidasthenia maculata  by Fauvel (1923) to Lepidasthenia brunnea  , thus it is likely that specimens identified with Fauvel's key in fact belong to Lepidasthenia brunnea  .
