Remarks: Diphascon (Adropion) scoticum sensu  lato is a cosmopolitan complex of very similar species, which can only be determined by careful integrated taxonomy (morphology and molecular techniques). A redescription of D. (D.) scoticum sensu  stricto type material is required before the South American reports of this species can be confirmed.
