Abstract
    The taxonomic status of the allegedly cosmopolitan Oncaea mediterranea (Claus, 1863) is reviewed. Comparison of Claus' fragmentary original description and the subsequent redescription by Giesbrecht in 1892 revealed significant differences which might lead to taxonomic confusion. Most authors have adopted Giesbrecht's identification, but it is clear that several, as yet unnamed, species have been recorded in the literature under the wrong name O. mediterranea. The species is redescribed in detail on the basis of material from the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean. The occurrence of two size morphs in the eastern Mediterranean populations is briefly discussed. O. mediterranea sensu Bourne (1889) is regarded as species inquirenda in the genus.
