             Syn.: Podura Aquatica(sic) Poda, N, 1761:120 err ISS
Remark by Janssens, F. 2013.11.08: The presence of external mouthparts and 4 antennae excludes Podura Aquatica(sic) Poda, 1761:120 from Collembola. The more detailed description of Scopoli, 1763:379 places Podura Aquatica(sic) Poda, 1761:120 within Amphipoda (Gammaridae).

             Syn.: Podura Aquatica(sic) Scopoli, JA, 1763:379 err ISS
Remark by Janssens, F. 2013.11.05: The presence of external mouthparts and 4 antennae excludes Podura Aquatica(sic) Scopoli, 1763:379 from Collembola. The tripartite 'tibiae', the large body size and the laterally compressed body place Podura Aquatica(sic) Scopoli, 1763:379 within Amphipoda (Gammaridae).
