Skarżyński, D. & Babenko, A. 2009: Description of two new species of Hypogastrura Bourlet, 1839 of the H. crassaegranulata group (Collembola: Hypogastruridae) from the Caucasus, with notes on some related species. - Entomol. Fennica 20: 275-280.
A revision of 'Hypogastrura crassaegranulata' material from the eastern Palaearctic was done as all records before 2006 referred to H. crassaegranulata have become unclear after recent redescription of the species. It shown that among four forms mentioned under this name by Babenko et al. (1994) none belongs to true H. crassaegranulata. Two of these forms are in fact species new to science described and illustrated below as H. tepli sp. n. and H. aushensis sp. n. (Russia, Northern Caucasus). Two others appear to be H. franconiana (Stach, 1949) and H. szeptyckii Skarżyński, 2006 firstly recorded from Kazakhstan (Tien Shan) and Ukraine (Carpathians), respectively.
