Meotica hamata  ASSING, 2011: 213.

T y p e m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: SeeASSING (2011).

A d d i t i o n a l m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: UKRAINE: 1♂, Kyiv, M " Lisova " env., leaf litter, 9.IV.2018, leg. Gontarenko (cAss). 

C o m m e n t: Meotica hamata  was originally described based on a unique male holotype from the Turkish province Bolu ( ASSING 2011). The above male from Ukraine represents a new country record. Based on the similarly derived morphology of the aedeagus, this species is closely allied to M. filiformis  .

D i a g n o s i s: ♂: sternite VIII ( Fig. 97View Figs 91-99) strongly transverse, posterior margin obtusely produced in the middle; median lobe of aedeagus ( Figs 98-99View Figs 91-99) of distinctive shape; ventral process apically spear-shaped in ventral view; apical lobe of paramere blackish.

♀: unknown.

For additional illustrations see ASSING (2011).

D i s t r i b u t i o n: Turkey (Bolu); Ukraine.
