2003 - Volume: 43 Issue: 4 pages: 345-351
KeywordsMacrochelidae Iran sibling species species group superspecies
Three new species are described from Iran, Macrocheles elongatum n. sp., M. kermani sp. n. and M. kamalii sp. M. kermani and M. kamilii showed the characteristics of the glaber-group sensu Walter and Krantz. The adequacy of the glaber-group is dicussed in regard to the definition by Filipponi and Pegazzano and to its current use in biology. The authors propose to substitute the term of superspecies for the existing species-groups, and to limit the glaber-group to the sibling species M. glaber and perglaber.
