Remark. Georgian finding has some differences from original species regarding lamellar length and shape of the rostrum. The first author has sent the individuals to Dr. Sergey Ermilov who compared them with type material of Mahunka. Based on morphology alone, Georgian find is not a new species, although the genetic analysis may prove the contrary.
