Rhizophobates shimojanai Karasawa & Aoki, 2005

Distribution: Japan.

Remarks: Subías (2004) transferred this species to the genus Thalassozetes  but did not provide any explanation for this transfer and only published it in his online catalogue therefore this taxonomic act should be rejected ( Pfingstl & Schuster 2012a).
