(8) Herpetocypris chevreuxi ( Sars, 1896) View in CoL

and Herpetocypris romei Anichini, 1967

Taking into account the morphological variation that is to be expected in a species that reproduces parthenogenetically (males of H. chevreuxi have so far never been found), the detailed original description of H. romei rather perfectly complies with the description of Herpetocypris chevreuxi . H. romei is therefore put in synonymy with H. chevreuxi .
