TitleThe Tipula (Acutipula) maxima group (Insecta, Diptera, Tipulidae). I. Taxonomy and distribution
JournalBijdragen tot de Dierkunde
AbstractA systematic account is presented of the species of the Tipula (Acutipula) maxima group. To the eleven species and subspecies already known, six are added as new: maxima balcanica, transcaucasica latifurca, libanica, cretensis, isparta, and cypriensis. Of all taxa the genital structures of the males and females are described and figured. These structures allow a grouping of the species into five subgroups. The distribution of the species and subspecies is mapped; they are all limited to smaller areas in the Mediterranean region, but for maxima itself which occupies almost entire Europe.
