Abstract

The new species Loewia papei sp. nov. from southern Anatolia (Turkey) is described, illustrated and compared with congeners. A brief diagnosis of Loewia Egger is provided and the systematics of the genus are discussed. Loewia nudigena Mesnil, 1972 is fixed as the type species of Fortisia Rondani, 1861 (junior synonym of Loewia). A full list of previously known valid species of Loewia is provided along with information on primary types, type repositories (where known), and type localities. A lectotype is designated for Thrychogena brevifrons Rondani, 1856 (= Loewia brevifrons (Rondani, 1856)).
