Two new Peripodisma species from Albania

Roy Kleukers

In 2015 two new species of Peripodisma have been described from Albania. This is quite remarkable, as the genus contained only one species, known from Greece (Epirus): E. tymphii. In the summer of 2014 Peripodisma llofizii was discovered in the Gjirokastër region of Albania. Peripodisma ceraunii was found in the Vlora district in southern Albania.
