The collected specimens were identified by means of the key given by Tumanov (2006) and comparison with a new species of Kaczmarek and Michalczyk (2007) for the recognition of all known species. According to Tumanov (2006), M. tardigradum  must be considered widely distributed but not cosmopolitan.
