Amphileptus claparedei— Matis & Tirjaková 1995: 247.

Amphileptus claparedii— Tirjaková 1997 b: 27; Tirjaková 1998: 15; Tirjaková 2010: 35.

Nomenclature. Misspelled as “ A. claparedei ” by Matis & Tirjaková (1995), and thus unavailable according to the Articles 33.3 and 33.5 of the ICZN (1999).

Main morphological characters (according to Foissner et al. 1995). Size 100–240 × 30–40 µm in vivo. Body ellipsoidal with a conspicuous concavity on left side. Two macronuclear nodules with a single micronucleus in between. Many irregularly scattered contractile vacuoles. No extrusomes. Somatic ciliary pattern Amphileptus -like; 15–18 right and about 5 left kineties.

Distribution. Amphileptus claparedii was recorded in the littoral zone of the Danube River near the hydroelectric power structures in Gabčíkovo ( Matis & Tirjaková 1995); in an oligotrophic stream in the National Nature Reserve Rozsutec, Malá Fatra Mts ( Tirjaková 1997 b); in the benthos of the Hron River and its tributary, Vyhniansky potok stream ( Tirjaková 1998); in the benthos and plankton of a hypertrophic shallow water reservoir near the town of Modra ( Tirjaková 2010).
