Ochetostethus nanus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1834)

Species distributed in the south-western parts of the Mediterranean subregion; records from other European regions pertain to O. opacus (Scholtz). Records from Algeria Egypt Morocco most probably pertain to O. perepelovi Kerzhner and O. tarsalis Mulsant & Rey, as the records from Tunisia do (Carapezza, 1997; Magnien, 2005). The record from Madeira (Heiss & Faraci, 2014) needs verification.
