Taxonomy:

Citation: Watznaueria communis Reinhardt, 1964
Rank: species
Taxonomic discussion: The name W. communis is probably best regarded as a junior synonym or variant of Watznaueria britannica (Stradner, 1963) Reinhardt, 1964. Most authors do not separate the taxa but the distinct obliquity shown in the type specimen is a possible basis for separation.
