56. Hypsibius microps Thulin, 1928  sensu lato [T]

Terra typica  : Sweden (Europe)

Algeria:

• 36°40′N, 04°36′E; 1,400 m asl: Tizi Ouzou Province, Akfadou Forest. Binda & Pilato (1987)GoogleMaps 

• 36°38′N, 05°45′E; 1,200 m asl: Jijel Province, M’Sid-Ech-Cheta (Texenna Pass). Binda & Pilato (1987)GoogleMaps 

Record numbers. Algeria: 2; total: 2.

Remarks. A possible species complex, which can be confused with H. pallidus  and the Hypsibius convergens  - dujardini  complexes (Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2009). The distribution of Hypsibius microps  sensu lato is largely Holarctic ( McInnes 1994), but specimens of this group should be examined extremely carefully as they may represent new species.
