Piscicola cf. haranti Jarry, 1960


Piscicola cf. haranti Jarry, 1960 

Records: Bílina River, Ústí nad Labem [5350], 50 ° 39 ' 28 "N / 14 °02' 31 "E, lgt. A (2007), det. JSy (2008); Mlýnský Brook, Litovel [6368], 49 ° 41 ' 58 "N / 17 °04'08"E, lgt. JSy, det. JSy (2008) ( Figure 2View FIGURE 2).

Habitats: The species was recorded in slow running waters located in the lowlands of the country.

Status: Piscicola cf. haranti  is reported in this paper to be a new record for the Czech Republic. The first two records of this species in the country were collected from the Morava (March) and Labe (Elbe) River basins, and indicate its possible wider distribution in the country. Over the last 20 years this species has likely been slowly expanding its range throughout central Europe.
