Taxonomic status of Leioderes kollari L. Redtenbacher and Leioderes tuerki (Ganglbauer) with new subspecies, host plants and records from Turkey (Cerambycidae: Cerambycinae)

Abstract :

Taxonomic status of Leioderes kollari L. Redtenbacher and Leioderes tuerki (Ganglbauer) are discussed on the base of the original descriptions and their distribution patterns. As a result, Leioderes bodemeyeri (Reitter, 1903) stat. nov. is proposed as a separate species. Leioderes bodemeyeri tokatense ssp. nov. is proposed as a new subspecies for Northern population of Leioderes bodemeyeri (Reitter) from Tokat province in Black Sea region of North Turkey, while Leioderes bodemeyeri samai ssp. nov. is proposed as a new subspecies for Southern population of Leioderes bodemeyeri (Reitter) from Lebanon. In addition, Leioderes tuerki (Ganglbauer) is recorded for the first time from Antalya province, while Leioderes bodemeyeri (Reitter) stat. nov. is recorded for the first time from Osmaniye province of Turkey. Also, Quercus calliprinos Webb (= coccifera Linnaeus) (Fagaceae) and Juglans regia Linnaeus (Juglandaceae) are given as new host plant species and family for Leioderes tuerki (Ganglbauer).
