status

 

Occasjapyx kofoidi ( Silvestri, 1928) 

Shasta County: Potter Creek Cave (type locality), 3 specimens, 1903, W. Sinclair, as Japyx kofoidi ( Silvestri 1928)  , and 8 June 1995, D. Ubick, 1 indiv. ( CASAbout CAS).

Reddell (1983) does not consider this species to be cave-adapted (troglomorphic). Rudolph et al. (1985) reported a collection of Japygidae  in Samwel Cave, which is only 16 km from the type locality. G.O. Graening inventoried both caves in 2012 and could not find any diplurans.
