Eumerus lucidus Loew, 1848: 134 

Examined specimens. 1♂, 1♀, Asir, Maraba, Al-Hudaithy Fruit Farm , 1–30.v.2004, Malaise trap, H.A. Dawah ( CERS)  .

Distribution. This is the first record from Saudi Arabia. It was described from Greece and is further recorded from Russia ( Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekekistan) and Yemen ( Peck 1988; Smit et al. 2017; Speight 2020).

Remarks. Since the diagnostic characters of the species are known from the male sex there is always the slight possibility that the female is of another species. We prefer to regard the females as Eumerus  sp. nr. lucidus  until such time as molecular investigation can reveal their true identity.
