Remarks: Hypsibius convergens sensu  lato is a species complex ( Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009 a) with an apparent global distribution ( McInnes 1994 a). The taxa within this complex require careful examination, and can only be determined via subtle details of claws and other morphometric characters (e.g. Miller et al. 2005, Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009 a).
