Chaoborus   sp.

Chaoborus   sp.: Zhang et al. 2019: (molecular phylogeny).

This taxon is treated here as a putative undescribed species of the C. flavicans   complex. Komyo (1954) redescribed Japanese specimens as C. crystallinus   and illustrated the male paramere.According to Komyo, this species lacks tergal bands and the paramere does not fit C. crystallinus   , C. flavicans   , C. albipes   or C. posio   sp. n. In recent molecular studies ( Dupuis et al. 2008; An et al. 2012; Zhang et al. 2019) a few specimens (four in total, see below) seem to form separate clusters or branches, which probably represent a distinct taxonomic species ( Fig. 15 View FIGURE 15 ). This species may be the Chaoborus   illustrated by Komyo, but conclusive evidence is still lacking. Further integrative studies are needed to clarify the status of this taxon which may be endemic to Japan. This taxon formed a unique BIN BOLD: AEA 6459 in BOLD, composed of the specimen MK281356 View Materials analysed by Zhang et al. (2019). The collecting data of the specimen is the following: Japan, Kyushu, Fukuoka-shi, Kashii, 2.10.2013, Shigetaka Nonaka leg. ( Zhang et al. 2019 appendix). Sequencing of the specimens studied by Dupuis et al. (2008) and An et al. (2012) did not cover the COI barcoding region and are not comparable in the present context. GenBank accession number DQ146274 View Materials ( Dupuis et al. 2008) was collected from Toyama prefecture, N36.81, E136.93, in 2004; JQ277993 View Materials and JQ277994 View Materials ( An et al. 2012) lack collection data, except “ Japan ”.
