Abstract

The little known species Alphasida (Glabrasida. nitida Bedel, 1918, described from eastern Morocco based on the unique type specimen, is rediscovered by numerous specimens from the type locality. The peculiar ecology of this species is indicated. Its systematic position in the subgenus Glabrasida Escalera, 1910 within the genus Alphasida Escalera, 1905 is confirmed. A redescription of this species based on both sexes is given and a neotype is designated.
