Terra typica  : Germany (Europe)

Democratic Republic of Congo:

Tunisia:

• 36°43'45''N, 08°44'11''E; 373 m asl: Jendouba Governorate, Beni M'tir, forest, moss on soil. Gąsiorek et al. (2017)GoogleMaps

Remarks. The pingue  group is a complex of similar species ( Pilato & Binda 1998, 1999, see Fontoura & Pilato (2007) for diagnostic key). Diphascon pingue  sensu lato was believed to be cosmopolitan ( McInnes 1994a), but the recent revision suggests the nominal species is probably Holarctic ( Pilato & Binda 1998, 1999). Some of the African reports could be for Diphascon pingue  sensu stricto; however, other species from pingue  group, e.g. D. zaniewi  from the Republic of South Africa, have been described from the region.
