Diagnosis. The shape of the male flagellum of Draculoides bythius most closely resembles D. affinis , D. anachoretus , D. cochranus , D. eremius , D. gnophicola , D. kryptus , D. mckechnieorum , D. noctigrassator and D. warramboo , especially in the presence of a broad base. It differs from D. affinis , D. eremius and D. gnophicola in the presence of a distally tapered end (blunt end in the aforementioned species). It differs from D. anachoretus , D. cochranus , D. mckechnieorum , D. noctigrassator and D. warramboo in the position of dm4 being in line with dl3, dm4 is anterior to dl 3 in the aforementioned species. It differs from D. kryptus in the anterior position of dm 4 in relation to dl3 (dm4 posterior to dl 3 in D. kryptus ). Females of this species differ from all other females by the position of microsetae between the two most anterior flagellomere of the flagellum. Draculoides bythius can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides species that were sequenced at COI and 12S by the 50bp mini-barcodes shown in Figures 3 View FIGURE 3 and 5 View FIGURE 5 . Draculoides bythius can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides species that were sequenced at ITS2 ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ) except for Draculoides anachoretus , D. eremius , D. gnophicola , D. kryptus , D. mckechnieorum , D. warramboo , D. immortalis , D. belalugosii , D. christopherleei , D. piscivultus and D. akashae , which are not distinguishable using the ITS2 mini-barcode.

Description. See Harvey et al. (2008).

Remarks. Draculoides bythius is found in Mesas B and C situated west of Pannawonica in the Pilbara region of Western Australia ( Fig. 1A View FIGURE 1 ).
