Remarks: Sphaeromicola hamiger was elevated to species by Remy (1948a: 129), but with the original suffix for species name. Paris (1920b: 485) seemed somewhat unsure of his record of S. topsenti on Caecosphaeroma virei from the cave of Baume-les-Messieurs in the Jura Mountains of France, and suggested that additional material was needed to confirm identification; this record was based on examination of a single adult male. Remy (1951: 224–225) noted that S. hamigera was the only species he had recovered from both the host species, C. virei, and the cave Baume-les-Messieurs. As such, Remy believed that Paris’ Jura Mountains record of S. topsenti was almost undoubtedly S. hamigera. This putative corrected identification was recalled in Meisch (2000: 468). Hart & Hart (1974: 165) erroneously list the figure for this species as appearing on Plate XLIII as Fig. 15, when in fact it is Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 on the Plate XLIV, on the following page.
