Morphological variants labelled “forms”, “varieties” or “ecomorphs” have been described in numerous taxa, but what they really represent often remains unclear or untested. With recent advances in methods of species delimitation we can explicitly test if sympatrically occurring “forms” merit species status under the unified species concept. We apply morphological, nuclear and mitochondrial data on water mite “forms” with or without prior taxonomical status
