Remarks: This species has a disjunct distribution ( McInnes 1994 a) suggesting the need for further taxonomic analysis, especially in the light of numerous recently described new Doryphoribius  species. Also, Doryphoribius zappalai  was originally described from a riverine habitat and the majority of South American records are terrestrial (see Degma et al. 2009–2014 and key in Michalczyk & Kaczmarek 2010).
