Ixus [sic] xanthopygos
Hemprich and Ehrenberg, 1833,
Arabia = probably Sinai Peninsula (Egypt), Al Muwaylih (near north end of Red Sea, Saudi Arabia) or northern Lebanon.
No hybrids with P. barbatus known, and ranges apparently barely meet, but an old record of a mixed pair reported. Considerable confusion surrounds type locality, which remains uncertain#R. Name traditionally ascribed to Ehrenberg alone#R, but explicitly attributed to Hemprich too in original description. Monotypic.
E Mediterranean from SW & SC Turkey, W Syria, Lebanon, Israel and W Jordan S to NE Egypt (Sinai), also W, C & S Saudi Arabia, Yemen, N United Arab Emirates and N & SW Oman.
