Taxonomic / nomenclatural notes:
See De Smet & Verolet (2009) [Ref.18301] for comparison of A. curvidactyla with the closely related A. circinator and A. secreta! As the authors state, molecular investigations are needed to confirm the reliability of the delineations of these species on the basis of morphology.

Geographical Range:
Insufficiently known, hitherto known only from Holarctic, Afrotropical and Hawaiian region - some records of A. circinator may actually refer to A. curvidactyla.
Macrohabitat:
Riparian wetland; River, freshwater; River, freshwater (lowland); Stream, freshwater; Stream, freshwater (lowland);
Microhabitat:
Algae, benthic; Bottom sediments (predominantly anorganic); Macrophytes (Hippuris dominant); Periphyton (littoral vegetation); Psammolittoral; Sedges (Carex sp.), 'open water' between plants; Stream bottom: POM (gravel, stones);
Temperature:
12.80°C to 20.80°C, avg=19.16°C, n=5

Ecology summary:
Benthic and periphytic in littoral habitats of freshwater lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers; in psammolittoral, among macrophytes; rare (Jersabek & Bolortsetseg, 2010) [Ref.18457]. NB: Some records of A. circinator may actually concern A. curvidactyla (cf. De Smet and Verolet 2009 [Ref.18301].
