Taxonomic Notes

Salata & Borowiec (2018) - The status of A. gibbosa chorassanica Arnol’di, 1968 remains unclear. According to characters noted in the original description (Arnol’di 1968) it seems to be a distinct species. Unfortunately, we had no possibility to study the types of this taxon and at the moment we propose keeping its status as a synonym of A. gibbosa.
