  Comment: Dalla Torre (1896, page 230) lists the combination Eucera flabellifera Mocsáry, 1879 as a junior synonym of Eucera dalmatica Lepeletier, 1841, referencing page 12 of Mocsáry's 1881 article. Page 12 of Mocsáry's article includes a species description and lists Anthophora flabellifera Lep. and Eucera echii Mocsáry quite clearly. But no mention of the Eucera flabellifera combination as a new species could be found on this page nor in any index or errata. The omission of the title species may have been a lapsus calami
