Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This species with an uncertain diagnosis is in need of redescription. In the past, some specimens from
Europe and the USA were attributed to this taxon, but these were later re-examined and attributed to
Styraconyx sargassi. Presently the taxonomic position of this taxon is unclear and the genus/species is known
only from the type locality (see also remarks in S. craticulus). [details]
