I don't say that these specimens are Neoepitriptus sp., but they remind me much of this genus, because of the bristles on femur 1, the quite strong bristles on the abdominal sternites in low numbers, and the general habitus and colour.
Best regards, Danny

Thanks a lot for the suggestion! In fact, you may be right and they indeed belong to Neoepitriptus (initially, I had forgotten of this genus)! I will check the possible Graeco-Turkish species for it and return here if I find something!
