"The synonymy between Pachypasa otus (Drury, 1777) and P. otus fulvescens Kotzsch, 1932 is supported by the lack of any stable morphologic characters and average distance of 0.3% in the cytochrome C oxidase (COI) gene between the Balkan (n = 4) and the Levantine (n = 2) populations. The Iranian population is described as a new species, Pachypasa hausmanni sp. n., based on morphologic difference, geographic isolation, and an average genetic distance of 6.1%."
