41. Pseudechiniscus facettalis Petersen, 1951  sensu lato [T]

Pseudechiniscus suillus ( Ehrenberg, 1853)  forma facettalis Petersen, 1951  ( Haspeslagh 1982) Terra typica  : Greenland

Kenya:

• 00°10′S, 37°18′E; 4,270 m asl: Nyeri County, Mount Kenya National Park, Mount Kenya, Teleki Tarn, small effluent and shallow pond, silt, sediments and sandy gravel. Haspeslagh (1982)

Tunisia:

• 36°43'19''N, 08°43'30''E; 474 m asl: Jendouba Governorate, Beni M'tir, forest, moss on soil. Gąsiorek et al. (2017)GoogleMaps 

Record numbers. Kenya: 1, Tunisia: 1; total: 2.

Remarks. A widespread taxon ( McInnes 1994a), in the suillus  species complex. Only two individuals were identified in Kenyan samples and from a non-typical (aquatic) habitat, which coupled with the type locality ( Greenland) indicates this African record requires re- examination.
