This contribution is considered being no generic revision but intends to demonstrate what is known and what is still unknown. Feedbacks and hints on the systematic, on further publications, and discussions are highly welcome. Further studies on the taxa of genus Cricula of the Indonesian fauna and in particular studies on the early stages, the biology and the ecology are considered needed. During the past years the number of taxa in the genus Cricula increased rapidly mainly due to DNA-analysis, but contrary the knowledge on the biology and ecology unfortunately not improved considerably thus far."
