Highighted items on the list are where Kottelatlimia hipporhynchos may be found.
Remarks Observed it in various habitats, with different substrates (including peat), but most abundant in streams with clear tannin-stained water on white sandy bottom. Observed resting on the sand substrate or diving into it. Kottelatlimia pristes has occasionally been collected at the same localities as K. hipporhynchos, but it does not occupy the same habitat. Kottelatlimia pristes was not observed on sandy substrate but on or inside peat, soil and leave litter (Ref. 79884).
