( Figs 21 View FIGURES 19–26 , 135–137 View FIGURES 135–149 )

Sesia mannii Lederer, 1853   : Verhandlungen des zoologisch-botanischen Vereins in Wien, Abhandlungen 2 [“1852”], 2: 88. Lectotype: ♂, Brussa [ Turkey, Bursa] (MFNB).

This and the following two species are well defined by morphological characters and DNA barcode sequence and will not be discussed here in detail.

Barcodes. P. mannii   is a very homogenous species with small intraspecific differences of about 0.3%. It is sister to P. hera   with an average distance of 4.8%, and both form a well-supported clade together with P. atypica   .

Biology and habitat. Life history and habitat were described by Laštůvka & Laštůvka (1980). The hostplant is Geranium rotundifolium Linnaeus   ( Geraniaceae   ); development takes one year. The larvae live in the root and bore a tunnel of about 50 mm length. Mating takes place in the late morning, oviposition on various plants close to the root of the hostplant, at a time when the parts above ground are completely dry or lost. It has been found in xerothermic bush, forest edges and road sides, even near the seashore.

Distribution. South-eastern Bulgaria and northern Turkey ( Laštůvka & Laštůvka 1995, 2001, Špatenka et al. 1999, Garrevoet et al. 2007, our own findings).
