Abstract
    The occurrence of Bela powisiana (Dautzenberg 1887) is reported in the Alboran Sea, therefore documenting a Lusitanian distribution for this little known species. Bela mingoranceae Martin Pérez & Vera Peláez 2007, recently described from the same area, is considered a synonym. Bela powisiana is compared with two other congeneric species found sympatrically in southern Spain. The nameBela zonata (Locard 1892) is suggested as the valid name to be employed instead of the well known Bela laevigat (Philippi 1836), twice preoccupied.
