Hypsibius dujardini ( Doyere, 1840)  

Localities and specimen numbers.

XIV: 2 specimens (including 1 simplex), XV: 5 specimens.


Hypsibius dujardini   belongs to the cosmopolitan convergens-dujardini complex of species ( McInnes 1994, Miller et al. 2005, Kaczmarek and Michalczyk 2009a, Kaczmarek et al. 2014a), and used to be considered cosmopolitan, but it is most likely a complex of similar (possibly cryptic) species found throughout the world. Due to the limited original description, Hypsibius dujardini   needs a modern redescription. Nevertheless, the examined specimens correspond perfectly with the original description and the Hypsibius dujardini   characteristics reviewed by Miller et al. (2005).
