Isohypsibius deflexus ( Mihelčič, 1960 ) sensu


133. Isohypsibius deflexus ( Mihelčič, 1960) sensu  lato [F]

Terra typica: France (Europe)


• 34 ° 56 ′S, 58 °04′W; 0 m asl: Buenos Aires Province, Arroyo Rodríguez, plankton sample. Rossi & Claps (1991)

Record numbers: Argentina: 1; total: 1.

Remarks: This Argentinean report is the only reference remote from the type locality ( France, Europe), and thus it may be incorrect. The original species description reported separation of the claw primary branches from the basal section, suggesting this species belongs to Ramazzottius  . A revision of both type material, and the Argentinean sample, is required.
