About this book

Language: English

A revision of the Anillina from Greece is given. Iason nov. gen. (type species: I. argonauta n. sp.) is described and the genera Caecoparvus Jeannel, 1937, Parvocaecus Coiffait, 1956, and Winklerites Jeannel, 1937, are redefined. The following phyletic series are characterized: a phyletic series of Prioniomus Jeannel, 1937 (represented in Greece only by the genus Prioniomus), a phyletic series of Winklerites (represented in Greece only by the genus Winklerites Jeannel, 1937), and a phyletic series of Caecoparvus (represented in Greece by the genera Caecoparvus Jeannel, 1937, Parvocaecus Coiffait, 1956, and Iason nov. gen.).

The following new species are described: Prioniomus peloponnesiacus n. sp. from O. Ménalon, P. etontii n. sp. from northern Greece (nom. Dráma), P. gabriellae n. sp. from O. Kaliakoúda, P. scaramozzinoi n. sp. from O. Karáva, P. antonellae n. sp. from O. Erímanthos, Winklerites luisae n. sp. from O. Páïko, W. casalei n. sp. from O. Vérmio, W. zaballosi n. sp. from O.
