Assessment Rationale:

Parapelecopsis mediocris was described from an undefined locality in Madeira Island, Portugal. It is a possible junior synonym of Parapelecopsis nemoralioides. This species is assessed as Data Deficient (DD) due to the lack of knowledge on its taxonomy, distribution, population trend, ecology and threats. More research is needed in order to assess its extinction risk.

Conservation Actions

No specific conservation measures are in place for this species and it is unknown whether it occurs in any protected area. The species is not found since original description in 1899 (Kulczyński 1899) and needs, first of all, taxonomic clarification to confirm synonymy with P. nemoralioides. If valid, basic information would be needed on its distribution, ecology and possible threats.
