Pseudocalamobius tsushimae, a North-East Palaearctic species occuring in Russian Far East, China, Japan, and Korean Peninsula, has been described from Tsushima Island (Japan)
as Pseudocalamobius japonicus tsushimae by Stephan Breuning in 1961 [▽]. Specimens of this taxon collected on the Asian continent (Russian Far East, Korea, China) have
long been mistaken for a related species Pseudocalamobius japonicus (Bates, 1873) occurring only in Japan.
