According to Ribes et al. (2007) this taxon would now be synonymized with Carpocoris fuscispinus. Nonetheless, the specific validity of C. mediterraneus was definitively confirmed genetic analyses (Lupoli R., Dusoulier F., Cruaud A., Cros-Arteil S. & Streito J. C., 2013. Morphological, biogeographical and molecular evidence of Carpocoris mediterraneus as a valid species (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae). Zootaxa 3609 (4): 392–410)
