Abstract
A male specimen of Crypticus Latreille, 1817 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) was collected in Hatay, Turkey and described as a new species, Crypticus buyukalacai n. sp. It is separated from Crypticus quisquilius (Linné, 1761) and from other presumptive European subspecies and synonymies, previously confused with C. quisquilius (L.): C. pyrenaeus Baudi, 1876, stat. nov. from France and Italy; C. apreutianus Gridelli, 1949 stat. nov. from central and meridional Italy; C. opacus Brancisk, 1899 stat. nov. from Turkmenistan, and C. strauchi Roubal, 1911, stat. nov. from Bosnia. The identity and taxonomic status of C. quisquilius laticollis Baudi, 1876, from Iraq, Persia, cannot be established without a revision of the Crypticus inhabiting the Mesopotamian region.
