Naiazetes reevesi Behan-Pelletier, 1996


Naiazetes reevesi Behan-Pelletier, 1996 

Combination: Geminozetes (Naiazetes) reevesi ( Behan-Pelletier, 1996)  ; ( Subías 2004).

Geographic Location and Habitats: QC: Parc National de Frontenac, aquatic ( Behan-Pelletier 1996).

Distribution: Nearctic.

Remarks: We reject the placement of Naiazetes  ( Heterozetidae  ) as a subgenus of Geminozetes  ( Ceratozetidae  ) by Subías (2004), as no arguments were given for this placement.

Genus Zetomimus Hull, 1916 

Remarks: Zetomimus  was considered a member of Ceratozetidae  by Subías (2004), without justification. We include it in Heterozetidae  based on arguments in Behan-Pelletier & Eamer (2003).
