Diagnosis. The shape of the male flagellum of Draculoides kryptus   most closely resembles D. affinis   , D. anachoretus   , D. bythius   , D. cochranus   , D. eremius   , D. gnophicola   , 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 tip (blunt tip in the aforementioned species). It differs from D. anachoretus   , D. bythius   D. cochranus   , D. mckechnieorum   , D. noctigrassator   and D. warramboo   in the posterior position of dm 4 in relation to dl3 (dm4 anterior to dl 3 in all of the aforementioned species except D. bythius   , in which dm4 is in line with dl3). It is currently not possible to differentiate females of this species on morphology alone. Draculoides kryptus   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 kryptus   can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides   species that were sequenced at ITS2 ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ) except for D. anachoretus   , D. bythius   , D. eremius   , D. gnophicola   , 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 kryptus   is found in Mesa K situated south of Pannawonica in the Pilbara region of Western Australia ( Fig. 1B View FIGURE 1 ).
