Sesia therevaeformis Lederer, 1853   : Verhandlungen des zoologisch-botanischen Vereins in Wien, Abhandlungen 2 [“1852”], 2: 82. Syntypes: 2♂ (?), 4♀, Spalato [ Croatia, Split] and Brussa [ Turkey, Bursa] (lost? Not in MFNB).

Sesia cretica Rebel, 1916   : Annalen des k.k. Naturhistorischen Hofmuseums, 30: 143. Syntypes: 2♀, Greece, Crete, Kristallenia and Mallaes (NHMW).

Chamaesphecia leucomelaena f. cyrnea Le Cerf, 1920   : Études de Lépidoptérologie Comparée , 17: 506. Syntypes: 15♂, 5♀, France, Corsica (MNHN).

Distribution. The typical subspecies is known from southern France in the west across southern Europe to Turkey in the east. It also occurs on the Mediterranean islands of Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Crete and Cyprus ( Laštůvka & Laštůvka 1995, 2001, Špatenka et al. 1999). Based on Gorbunov (pers. communication), this species is absent from Crimea. Specimens from central and northern Spain are here provisionally assigned to the typical subspecies; however, more detailed analyses are needed to map the precise distribution of the two subspecies of P. leucomelaena   in the Iberian Peninsula.
