Oligocharina corcyrica SCHEERPELTZ, 1929  

At present, only the holotype of O. corcyrica   , a flightless species and the sole representative of the genus, is known. This, as well as the fact that there is no close relative in all of the Palaearctic region (holotype of O. corcyrica   re-examined) casts some doubt on the correctness of the type locality. It does not seem unlikely that the holotype was mislabelled and originated from another zoogeographic region.
