Abstract
The west palearctic species ol Marthamea are reviewed. Adults are distinct from other European genera, but larvae and eggs are very similar to those of genus Phasganophora. M. beraudi (Navás) (Antilebanon Mts.) is re-instated as a species distinct from M. vitripennis (Burmeister). A lectotype of the latter is designated. Its range includes south-west, central and south-east Europe. Records from Syria are unconfirmed, those from Israel are erroneous. The species has in the past been confused with larvae of a Phasganophora species. M. selysii (Pictet) has brachypterous males and is known from Spain north'to Meuse and Moselle rivers. Keys to adults and larvae are presented, but larval M. selysii and M. vitripennis can presently not be separated. The European Marthamea species are inhabitants of the potamon and are endangered; they are presently already extinct in parts of their former ranges.
