Scalibregma inflatum Rathke, 1843 


Species complex. Scalibregma inflatum  , often considered cosmopolitan, actually comprises a number of very similar or sibling species (e.g. Kudenov and Blake 1978). In Europe, at least four species of Scalibregma  are present ( Mackie 1991). It is likely that some older records of Scalibregma inflatum  from Greece belong to Scalibregma celticum  Mackie, 1991 ( Simboura 1996).
