    Notes

    Much confused with O. collinum and O. exscapum, in Greece only known to occur in IoI (Gutermann 1995, Speta 2000b: 383) and in Pe and EAe (Landström 1989: 37; Speta 1990a: 106, fig. 4). Records from other parts of Greece are most likely to represent O. refractum (see, e.g., Strid & Tan 1991: 691).
