  1. Abbreviations: Lap length of the apical processus, Wap width of the apical processus, Dt distance between the tips of the apical processes, Db distance between the bases of apical processes, N1and N2 numbers of observations for Lap/Wap and Dt/Db, respectively
  2. Significant differences (***P < 0.001 and **P < 0.01) between C. bysta n. sp. and C. pulicaris are indicated considering the cumulative data from Slovakia (SK) and France (FR); no significant differences were found between geographical populations of C. pulicaris
  3. aThe data from C. pulicaris were considered as a whole (C. pulicaris) or separately, regarding the origin in Slovakia (C. pulicaris SK) and France (C. pulicaris FR)
