Recently the genus Bradyporus has been revised. This genus holds 16 species and subspecies and is especially rich in Turkey. But the study also leads to a few changes for the European fauna. Bradyporus multituberculatus multituberculatus and Bradyporus multituberculatus montandoni are placed as subspecies and Bradyporus skopjensis is reinstated as a valid species. The IUCN Red List status of the species and subspecies are included.
