Lepidurus batesoni

There is very little known about this species, I’m not even sure if it’s currently believed to exist.  It is known only from a handful of males collected and preserved in the early 1900s.  The claw like endite of the 1st thoracic appendage argues strongly that it is/was a distinct species.
