Remarks.

There are seven slides labelled Epicriopsis hungarica  in the Budapest Museum Collection, none with type designation. Except for one female from Dobogókő (see comparative material above), all of these specimens belong to the original type series. The same is true for the five available slides labelled Epicriopsis baloghi  Kandil, 1978. One of the slides, labelled Meso-1350, bears a female of E. hungaricus  , misidentified as E. baloghi  .
