Material examined. Holotype male. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: Trinity Bore, 76.4 km S. of Pannawonica , 22°19’57”S, 116°21’32”E, 15–21 August 2008, troglofauna trap, 25 m, J. Alexander, T. Sachse (Biota Environmental Sciences, TBRC014 View Materials T1 ) ( WAM T 93142 View Materials ) (DNA: COI, ITS2 ). GoogleMaps

Diagnosis. Males of Draculoides confusus differ from all other species of Draculoides except for D. bramstokeri , D. julianneae and D. vinei by the laterally compressed flagellum. It differs from all of the aforementioned taxa by the blunt, squared off posterior end of the flagellum. It also differs from D. julianneae and D. vinei in the overall globular shape of the flagellum and in the much gentler tapering of the posterior end ( D. julianneae and D. vinei are much narrower from the middle to the posterior end of the flagellum). D. confusus differs from D. bramstokeri in dorsal and ventral view by the broader middle section of the flagellum D. bramstokeri is more uniformly narrow) and the placement of vm1 which is posterior to vm 2 in D. confusus and anterior to vm 2 in D. bramstokeri . Females are unknown. Draculoides confusus can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides species that were sequenced at COI by the 50bp mini-barcode shown in Figure 3 View FIGURE 3 . Draculoides confusus can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides species that were sequenced at ITS2 ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ) except for D. piscivultus , D. bramstokeri , Draculoides sp. SCH071, Draculoides sp. SCH092, Draculoides sp. SCH037, Draculoides sp. SCH054, Draculoides sp. SCH072, Draculoides sp. SCH081, Draculoides sp. SCH106, Draculoides sp. SCH107, Draculoides sp. SCH016, Draculoides sp. SCH105, and Draculoides sp. SCH110, which are not distinguishable using the ITS2 mini-barcode.

Description. See Framenau et al. (2018).

Remarks. Draculoides confusus is known only from a single bore in the southern Pilbara ( Fig. 1C View FIGURE 1 ).
