Meotica smetanai SCHEERPELTZ, 1967  ( Figs 65-68View Figs 60-68)

Meotica smetanai SCHEERPELTZ, 1967: 547  ff.

T y p e m a t e r i a l examined: Lectotype ♂, present designation: " ♂ / Albania centr., Tiranë, Smetana 1958 / 27.IV. A [overleaf] / ex coll. Scheerpeltz / Cotypus Meotica smetanai O. Scheerpeltz / Lectotypus ♂ Meotica smetanai Scheerpeltz  , desig. V. Assing 2017 / Meotica smetanai Scheerpeltz  , det. V. Assing 2017" ( NHMW).  Paralectotypes: 1♀: same data as lectotype ( NHMW);  1♂, 1♀: same data as lectotype, but "Typus" ( NHMW)  .

C o m m e n t: The original description is based on "1 ♂, 1 ♀, Typen, 3 ♀♀ Paratypen " from " Albania centr., Tiranë " ( SCHEERPELTZ 1967). Since a holotype is not specified, all the type specimens must be regarded as syntypes. The male labelled as "Cotypus" is designated as the lectotype, as it is in better condition.

D i a g n o s i s: ♂: median lobe of aedeagus 0.23 mm long, somewhat resembling that of M. filaria  ( Figs 65-66View Figs 60-68); apical lobe of paramere blackish.

♀: sternite VIII ( Fig. 67View Figs 60-68) weakly transverse, posterior margin convex; spermatheca similar to that of M. parasita  and M. moczarskii  , but with coiled proximal portion ( Fig. 68View Figs 60-68).

C o n f i r m e d d i s t r i b u t i o n: Albania.
