Abstract

Chloropterus versicolor (Morawitz, 1860) is recorded from southwest Turkey after about a century since its first record as C. versicolor var. infuscatus Sahlberg 1913. In the recent catalogues C. versicolor was not listed from Turkey, but given as a synonym of Bedelia insignis Lefevre, 1875. Actually, Chloropterus versicolor infuscatus is a new synonym of Chloropterus versicolor, but not a junior synonym of Bedelia insignis.
