Remarks.

Contrary to Oligaphorura groenlandica   , Oligaphorura ursi   , another northern circumpolar species of the genus, is common in the Magadan region inhabiting different wet sites above tree-line. Recently the species was redescribed on the basis of specimens from northern China ( Sun and Wu 2012a). We have some doubts about the identity of the Chinese and northern populations. Northern specimens usually have 6 long and four spiniform guard setae on the labial palp [versus 11 in Chinese specimens], ventral psx 10/000/212201+1m with frequent variations [versus 0/000/122200 in the Chinese ones] and at least one psx on each subcoxae, most usually 1-2-2 [versus completely absent]. Apart from this, it was said that the Chinese specimens had an identical number of setae on all tibiotarsi [versus 20-20-19 setae in northern populations].
