Notes

The species distribution covers southern Russia, Abkhazia, Georgia, north-western Azerbaijan and eastern Turkey ( Golovatch et al. 2015). H. roseum   is known as a typical leaf litter dweller. In the Abrau Peninsula, some individuals were collected from the compressed FH layer densely colonized by saprotrophic mycelium. This may be due to the altered, siphon-like mouthparts of Hirudisomatidans, which are presumably used for uptaking fluid food (e.g. hyphal contents) ( Read and Enghoff 2009).
