Hydrachna cruenta Müller, 1776 

Hydrachna schneideri Koenike, 1895  : synonymy first proposed by K. Viets (1935) ­ here confirmed.

Material examined: Hydrachna cruenta  male SMNH 6043, Östergötland, Källstad socken 13.6. 1913 Lundblad; female SMNH 752 Södermanland, Björnhuda, 5.7. 1923 Lundblad; Hydrachna schneideri  lectotype male, SMNH 375 Heiligenrode, 2370 Ostfriesland.

Discussion: Notwithstanding the lack of type material of H. cruenta  , it is generally accepted that the male syntype of H. schneideri Koenike, 1895  is identical to that species. As this specimen must be considered the lectotype of H. schneideri  , this name is obviously unavailable in taxonomic nomenclature and the valid name for all specimens published under the name of H. schneideri  is H. skorikowi ( Piersig, 1900)  (see under this name for a detailed discussion).
