Abstract

 Based upon a morphological study on topotypical larvae and reared imagines Habroleptoides carpatica Bogoescu and Crăsnaru, 1930 is considered as identical to H. confusa Sartori and Jacob, 1986. Diagnostic characters previously suggested for H. carpatica are shown to be unreliable and fall into the intraspecific variation of H. confusa. A proposal to consider H. carpatica as a senior subjective synonym of H. confusa is pending at the ICZN.
