3.2. Taxonomie

Huemer & van Nieukerken (2021: 305) akzeptieren diese Art und schreiben dazu: "The holotype was examined by EvN, but not sequenced due to lack of sufficient tissue to sample without damaging the specimen. We obtained two short sequences from female paratypes, both from a different part of the barcode, without overlap, which makes them not comparable. On the basis of the male and female genitalia, the species is considered to be the same as a taxon from Sardinia as assessed by EvN (cited by Triberti & Braggio 2011), and is assigned to BIN BOLD:ACG9232. In different neighbor-joining analyses the barcode sequences of the paratype specimens grouped with the Sardinian specimens, albeit at some distance. We consider this to be a Tyrrhenian endemic species."
