Notes

Reported from Greece by Dando et al. (1995) as Malacoceros vulgaris  , but Arvanitidis (2000a) and Simboura and Nicolaidou (2001) use the name Malacoceros girardi  . Pettibone (1963) synonymised Malacoceros girardi  with Malacoceros vulgaris  and only the latter is accepted as valid by several later authors (e.g. Dauvin et al. 2003, Delgado-Blas and Díaz-Díaz 2010, Mikac 2015). However, the name Malacoceros girardi  has been recently used for records from the Mediterranean (e.g. Castelli et al. 2008, Dağli 2008, Çınar et al. 2014). Herein, we follow the suggested synonymy by Pettibone (1963), since no contradicting evidence has been presented in the literature.
