Taxonomy & Nomenclature

Synonym/s: Mantis brevipennis Yersin, 1860:511 (original combination); Ameles brevipennis (Yersin, 1860:511); Yersinia brevipennis (Yersin, 1860:511)

 

Conservation Status

Extinct

Last record: pre-1860 (source); 1860 (Battiston, 2020)

IUCN status: Extinct

 

Known only from the holotype (fide La Greca, 1983) or holotype and allotype (fide Ehrmann, 2002) from Hyeres Island (Insel Hyères), France. The population on Sardinia/Sicily may or may not be of this species (La Greca, 1983). Further investigation is required, though this may already have been carried out since 1983 (e.g. Ehrmann, 2002?).
