Remarks

Latzel (1884) described degenerans   from Serbia and although having no further evidence presumed its occurrence on the territory of the Austrian­Hungarian Monarchy. His suspicion has proved correct as sixteen years later Verhoeff (1900 b) reported it form near Temesvar (Timisoara) and Herkulesbad (Baile Herculane) in Banat, Romania. Attems (1929) was the first to record it for the Republic of Macedonia, the Kosovan part of Shar Planina Mts., and in Nemila, in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The last­mentioned locality is rather far from the others, and along with Latzel’s (1888) record (repeated by Karlinski 1894) from Sucha, Trebinje in Herzegovina is the westernmost record of all. However, both are already quite outdated (101 and 76 years, respectively) and need to be confirmed with fresh material. Further finds from Macedonia and Serbia were recently reported by Mršić (1993) and Makarov et al. (2004). Although probably being of allochtonous origin, of special interest is the find of D. degenerans   in Budapest and Budai Mts., Hungary ( Korsós 1992, 1994; see also Korsós et al. 2002), which together with the undoubtedly introduced population of Callipus foetidissimus gallicus Brolemann, 1930   in Paris, France, forms the northern border of distribution of order Callipodida   in Europe ( Shear et al. 2003).

Besides in Latzel’s book (1884), illustrations of gonopods of D. degenerans   can be found also in the papers of Verhoeff (1900 a) and Hoffman & Lohmander (1964).
