Haplodrassus bohemicus Miller & Buchar, 1977: 163 View in CoL , pl. II, figs 1–6 (♂♀); Stefanovska et al. 2008: 37, figs 10– 15 (♂♀); Kovblyuk et al. 2012: 62, figs 1‒6, 10‒12 (♂♀).

Types: Holotype female, paratype male from Czech Republic, Bohemia, Raná, near Louny, Buchar leg.; not examined.

Comments. Our specimens are tentatively identified as H. bohemicus and are described hereunder, because the existing drawings of the species by Miller & Buchar (1977), Stefanovska et al. (2008) and Kovblyuk et al. (2012) don’t seem to belong to the same species. The embolic apophysis is gradually narrowing in figs 1‒2 of Miller & Buchar, and in figs 10‒11 of Stefanovska et al., whereas it has a step-like prodorsal margin in figs 2‒3, 5‒6 of Kovblyuk et al. Further studies are required to solve this problem.

Description. Measurements: Male (n=7): Total length 5.2‒7.8 mm; carapace 2.2‒2.8 long, 1.7‒2.2 wide. Female (n=11): Total length 7.6‒8.6 mm; carapace 2.8‒3.2 long, 2.1‒2.4 wide.

Colour: Carapace yellowish brown to brown, in some specimens with darkened striae and margin; legs yellowish brown; abdomen greyish black, anterior part with 3 pairs of small longitudinal stripes, in females mostly followed by 6‒7 pairs of chevrons.

Male palp ( Figs 200‒203 View FIGURES 198–204 ): Tibial apophysis relatively short, slightly widened before rounded tip; embolic apophysis thick, only slightly bent, gradually narrowing, distal part with slightly elevated crest, tip pointed.

Epigyne ( Fig. 204 View FIGURES 198–204 ): Slightly longer than wide, with hood distinctly narrower than areola; fovea nearly rectangular, posterior margin poorly expressed; areola very wide.

Material examined. GREECE, Ipeiros, Ionnanina, Vikos-Aoos National Park , Astraka (N39°57'54” E20°47'31”), 1910m, 3♂ 7♀, pitfalls in stony grassland, 30.IV‒12.VII.2007, B. Vandenberghe leg. ( CRB), idem, 4♂ 4♀, stones in grassland, 30.IV.2007, B. Vandenberghe leg. ( CRB) GoogleMaps .

Distribution. Czech Republic ( Miller & Buchar 1977), S. of European Russia ( Ponomarev & Tsvetkov 2006), FYR Macedonia ( Stefanovska et al. 2008), Greece ( Van Keer et al. 2010) and Ukraine ( Kovblyuk et al. 2012).
