Dear all,

I have a biogeographical question: the aquatic beetle genus Hygrobia (Dytiscoidea) is present with one species in Europe, one in China and four in Australia.

Does anybody know any other group of organisms showing a similar distribution? Probably, it is not the result of recent dispersal.
