Chaetozone setosa Malmgren, 1867 


Questionable status. Species complex. Chaetozone setosa  is a complex of pseudo-cryptic species, with at least five species in northern Europe alone ( Chambers and Woodham 2003). Several authors (e.g. Simboura 1996, Çınar and Ergen 2007, Mikac 2015) doubt the validity of Mediterranean records, as the species has likely been confused with Chaetozone gibber  Woodham & Chambers, 1994, Chaetozone corona  Berkeley & Berkeley, 1941 or Chaetozone carpenteri  McIntosh, 1911 and probably does not occur in the Mediterranean.
