Hypsibius convergens ( Urbanowicz, 1925 )


Hypsibius convergens ( Urbanowicz, 1925) 

Localities and number of specimens. V (2 and 1 exuvium), VI (1)

Remarks. Hypsibius convergens sensu  lato is a species complex ( Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009 b) with an apparent global distribution ( McInnes 1994), but in urgent need of re-description. Our specimens correspond well to the morphological characters proposed for this species by Miller et al. (2005).
