New records of Hyphodontia species from Taiwan

Lee, I-Shu; Langer, Ewald


Hyphodontia cineracea was known to be distributed in temperate regions of the northern and southern hemisphere. The new record is the first time found in subtropical Taiwan at an altitude of 2100-2200 m. There is evidence that this species is adapted to seasonal environment with low temperatures. Hyphodontia palme, hitherto collected only in Brazil was found in Taiwan and is the first report outside South America. Distribution and species delimitation for closely related species are compared and discussed.
