Cryptops parisi Brölemann, 1920

Status

GB IUCN status: Not applicable (non-native)
GB rarity status: Naturalised

Identification

Though typically reaching more than 30 mm, it is easily confused with the common C. hortensis.

It is readily differentiated from this (and the larger C.anomalans) by the very closely spaced (often fused) teeth on the tibial and tarsal combs of the last legs.
