Kemal & Kocak, 2015: This species is distinguishable from other relatives in the family by the black colouration of the body and most of the legs (Freidberg, 1984).
A West Asiatic species reaching its limit in Turkey. In Israel it was swept from herbaceous plants and from Juncus and Mentha near a spring. Koçak & Kemal have observed it in Eastern parts of Turkey and are currently looking for it elsewhere.
