Remarks: Before 2012 (Meregalli & Alonso-Zarazaga 2012) all specimens of R. echii were referred to R. seriegranosus. Most of the citations regarding the distribution of the two species are therefore not reliable; the European distribution reported by Fauna Europaea for R. seriegranosus was referred to R. echii based on the known distribution of the species.
