Stictoleptura ivoroberti, an endemic Greek species from Stictoleptura erythroptera group, has been described from Paradeisia environs (Arcadia, Greece) by Gianfranco Sama in 2010 [▽]. The species is rather similar to S. slamai, endemic species from Crete, which has a similar elytral pattern and which, however, may be easily distinguished by its elytra yellowish-black instead of reddish.
